Today, the Secretary State for Health, Matt Hancock, announced that 2.6m of the vaccines have been given to 2.3m people, indicating that some people have had their second dose of the vaccine. The Government aims to vaccinate the other priority groups by April and to be able to vaccinate everyone by the autumn. To accelerate the vaccination process, the Government has developed a Vaccine Delivery Plan which has 4 key parts:

1. Supply of Vaccine

This is a significant part of the plan. Currently, the Pfizer and Oxford vaccine are already being administered in the UK. The third vaccine by Moderna has now also been approved and will be rolled out soon. It is important that there is a continuous supply of the vaccine to support the delivery plan.

2. Prioritisation

The Government say they are on track to deliver their pledge to vaccinate the 4 prioritised groups by mid-February. Hancock confirmed that over a quarter of the care home residents have received their first dose of the vaccine.

3. Expand sites where people can get their jab

Hancock said that from 11 Jan 2021, big vaccination centres were put into operation across the UK to speed up the vaccination process. In London, the Nightingale site has been repurposed to be one of the vaccination centres. GP practices have begun giving out the jabs and soon community pharmacies will be joining the team.

The Government say that everyone will be able to reach a vaccination site within 10 miles of where they live. 10 miles is still a long distance to travel for those at the top of the age group and for those who are clinically extremely vulnerable. For people who are housebound, the effort to get a jab is even greater, and they have been told to wait until the Oxford vaccine is readily available so that it can be administered in their homes.

4. People

This mass vaccination programme requires a strong army of people. The NHS has now recruited and trained 80,000 people to support the vaccination process.

Hancock also said that the Government will monitor the situation carefully to decide when to ease the lockdown. The infection rate is still very high with 46,169 new cases on 11 January and an average of 926 daily deaths over the past 7 days.

The Government said that they know the vaccine can reduce the chances of people catching COVID and dying from it. However, it is not known whether people who have the vaccination can still transmit the virus. The Government will monitor the situation closely. It is crucial that people abide by the rules of the lockdown during the vaccination programme. The police have committed to step up enforcement against those who flout the rules.

疫苗注射計劃

今天,衛生部大臣, Matt Hancock,宣佈政府已採用了260萬劑疫苗為230萬人進行了注射,顯示有部份人士已完成了兩次的疫苗注射。政府計劃在四月底能為所有在優先名單上的人士完成注射,而到秋天便可為所有市民完成注射。為了加速疫苗注射行程,政府訂定了一個疫苗注射計劃,該計劃共有四部份。

1. 疫苗供應

這是計劃的一個重要部份。現時英國已全面使用輝瑞及牛津疫苗。第三類疫苗,Moderna 亦已獲通過並即將會被推出。要完政府所定的目標,疫苗的供應必不能斷。


2. 優先次序

政府宣稱注射行程順利,應可如期在二月中為頭四組優先人士完成注射。政府現已為四份之一的老人院長者完成了第一次注射。


3. 擴展注射場地

Hancock表示自2021年1 月11時起,全國已有多所大型疫苗注射場館投入服務。在倫敦,夜鶑中心﹝Nightingale site ﹞已開始轉運作了。接着便會有更多的家庭醫生診所及社區藥劑師加入提供注射疫苗服務。


政府聲稱日後所有人士都可在離家不遠於10英里的中心接受注射。但10英里對在優先排次首位的長者和健康極度脆弱的人士都是很遠的路程。行動不便的人士更難以前往中心接受注射,他們只能等待牛津疫苗的推出以能安排在家中接受注射。


4. 人力

這一個龐大的疫苗注射計劃需要一個強大的團隊支持。政府現已招募及培訓了80,000人士以支援計劃。


政府未能確實何時才放鬆封城令,會因應疫情而作決定。現時的感染率及死亡率還是非常之高;在1月11日便有46,169人感染病毒,而在過去7天每日平均便有926人因感染新冠病毒而死亡。

政府又宣稱,雖然知道疫苗能減低病毒感染及死亡率,但現時仍未能確實已接受注射的人士還會否是帶菌者。政府會小心監察發展,亦因此要求市民嚴謹遵守封城規則。警方已明確定必會嚴厲執行封城規則,請市民勿以身試法。
