Covid-19 vaccinations will start in Cheshire next week

The Countess of Chester is one of the first trusted institutions in the country to receive the novel coronavirus vaccine.

Health Minister Matt Hancock has confirmed that the NHS will start a coronavirus vaccination program early next week.

He told members of parliament on Wednesday that the health service was ready to administer the vaccines, after news that the British regulator had approved the candidate Pfizer vaccine.

The NHS has published a list of about 50 consortia that will provide vaccination centers, with Countess Chester one of them.

The list was published in a letter they sent to health officials last month.

It states: “All trust funds will need a vaccination plan for their workforce. Preparations to be made locally will vary:

• For trust funds that are also the vaccination center for the NHS Trust, your plans should cover how to vaccinate your workforce and how they will support neighboring trust funds to vaccinate their workforce.

“• For all other funds, your plan should cover how to work with your closest center to vaccinate your workforce if needed, and how you can deliver the vaccine within your confidence if that becomes possible. We are continuing to explore all options available to safely deliver the first available vaccine to all Funds “.

Hancock said there would be “three delivery routes” of the vaccine.

He said: “Fifty hospitals have already been established across the country and are waiting to receive the vaccine once it is approved, so that now happens.

“Also, vaccination centers, which will be large centers where people can go to vaccinate. They are being created now.

There will also be a community offering, including GPs and pharmacists.

Now, of course, given the storage conditions of this vaccine -70 ° C, they will be able to support this deployment as they have those facilities.

“ But they will also be there if the AstraZeneca vaccine is approved because it has no cold storage requirements and is therefore easy to apply in practice.

“We are the first country in the world to have a clinically approved vaccine.”

He continued: “So we will start at the beginning of next week the program to vaccinate people against Covid-19 here in this country.

“As we know from previous announcements, this vaccine is effective. And the MHRA has agreed that it is clinically safe. And we have a vaccine, so it’s very good news.”

He said he has spoken to the health ministers of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to share the news and plans for the startup.

He added, “The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization is the clinical committee that advises the government on priority and who gets the vaccine in any order.”

“They will be setting out the details of that priority later this morning, along with the MHRA, who will outline the clinical details behind this vaccine and why they made the decision to authorize it.

“It will happen in the middle of the morning so people can see every detail.

Also, priority setting is determined according to clinical need.

“We have been supporting people who are clinically important to Covid throughout this crisis.”

But he said the vaccine passport “is not part of our plan.”

“While we know that this vaccine protects you from contracting Covid – we don’t yet know to what extent it prevents you from transmitting Covid until we introduce it on a large scale,” he said.

Of course, we will watch that very carefully.

Therefore, we will vaccinate according to the protection of the people who are most in need of protection, according to those at risk of contracting Covid.

“So, this is part of the plan. The plan is to publish it, according to the clinical order of priorities that the counselors will set.”
