Age will be given importance in the next phase of Vaccination in Britain. For this reason, frontline workers like police-teacher are very angry with the government.
Vaccination campaign against Coronavirus continues in Britain. Vaccine supplements are being given to people on a large scale. In the UK, frontline workers are currently being given a vaccine on a priority basis. But an advisory group has said that in the next phase of vaccination in Britain, the vaccine will have to be applied on the basis of age rather than commercial risk. Since then, there is a lot of fury between the police and the teachers. Actually, they say that there is a high risk of getting infected in their work, so they should be given priority.
Speaking at a televised press conference, UK Health Minister Matt Hancock said that the UK Joint Committee on Immunization and Immunity (JCVI) suggested vaccine doses be applied on the basis of age, so that more people Life can be saved. He said, this is the fastest and easiest way to apply vaccine. It is our moral duty to save lives first and that is what we have done.
1.9 million people have been vaccinated so far
1.9 million people have been given at least one dose of vaccine in the UK so far. It also includes 35 percent of the adult population, which has been vaccinated. The government has said that it has targeted to vaccinate all its population by the end of July. JCVI announced earlier on Friday that by mid-April it intends to vaccinate people aged 50 and weaker groups. After this, the vaccine dose will be given to those aged 40. Then people under the age of 30 and those under 18 will be vaccinated.
Applying vaccine through age will increase the speed of vaccination
JCVI member Professor V Shen Lim said that applying vaccine according to age rather than occupational risk would speed up the vaccination process. The age-based program will be quite simple. Through this, speed and success will also be seen. Currently, the speed of the vaccine is a major factor. However, the decision was severely criticized by the police. This decision has been compared to the deception done to the police. In recent times, there has also been a decline in cases of corona in Britain. Due to this, restrictions can be relaxed soon.
