Differing vaccine priority list for UK vs France

  Differing vaccine priority list for UK vs France Based on guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), the first people in the UK to get any new vaccine will be elderly care homes and those who work in them. They will be followed by people over the age of 80 and NHS staff. All other age groups will then receive the jab in stages, with people under 50 the last to get it. However the UK strategy makes no mention of other workers who have close contact with the general public, including those in the hospitality sectors, teachers and cab drivers.

The UK’s newly appointed vaccine minister, Nadhim Zahawi , has suggested that people will have to show they’ve received the Covid vaccine if they wish to Zahawi was asked by the BBC on Monday if it will become virtually impossible to do anything without the vaccine , and the minister responded that

The duration of Mr Zahawi 's appointment suggests it could take up to six months for the vaccine to be fully rolled out across the UK. Mr Zahawi said he was "delighted" to be appointed to the role, vowing to ensure vaccines are rolled out quickly to save lives and livelihoods.

Pubs and restaurants could demand to know if a customer has received a coronavirus jab before allowing them in, the Government’s vaccine minister suggested.

Nadhim Zahawi, who is responsible for the rollout of a vaccine if one is approved by regulators, said it would not be compulsory to receive an injection.

But he suggested businesses might require proof of vaccination before allowing people in.

Asked whether people who get the Covid-19 jab will receive some kind of “immunity passport” to show they have been vaccinated, Mr Zahawi told the BBC: “We are looking at the technology.

Pub bosses say they face disaster with a million jobs on the line

  Pub bosses say they face disaster with a million jobs on the line Peter Tiley, landlord of The Salutation Inn, Gloucestershire, a former winner of National Pub of the Year, said he would not be able to open if forced to serve a meal. He told MailOnline: 'I'm gutted. I think it's a real slap in the face for community wet-led pubs. Neither of my pubs serve food and they're deliberately designed that way so people can come in, for a chat, without feeling like they're imposing on a restaurant.'Mr Tiley said that pubs have been 'sacrificial lambs' throughout the pandemic and is desperate to open to claw back some earnings in the vital winter trading window.

BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty has clashed with Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi on BBC Breakfast as they debated income support for the self-employed during lockdown.

Additionally, recent research suggests that anti- vaccine views are tied to deeply held psychological and moral aversions to inoculation, implying that We believe that these findings, although preliminary, suggest that many people who hold anti- vaccine beliefs may jeopardize the effectiveness of a

“And, of course, a way of people being able to inform their GP that they have been vaccinated.

“But, also, I think you’ll probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system – as they have done with the (test and trace) app.

“I think that in many ways, the pressure will come from both ways, from service providers who’ll say, ‘Look, demonstrate to us that you have been vaccinated’.

“But, also, we will make the technology as easy and accessible as possible.”

Such a regime could result in people without the vaccine facing severe restrictions.

Mr Zahawi said: “I think people have to make a decision.

“But I think you’ll probably find many service providers will want to engage with this in the way they did with the app.”

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told a Downing Street press conference: “For a long time now we’ve been looking at the questions that minister Zahawi was talking about and the question of what’s the impact on the individual in terms of what they can do.”

But he added: “Firstly, we do not plan to mandate the vaccine.

“We think that by encouraging the uptake of the vaccine, we will get a very high proportion of people in this country to take up the vaccine, because of course it protects you but it also helps to protect your loved ones and your community.”

Ilan Kelman, professor of disasters and health at University College London, said care needed to be taken for those who were unable to receive a vaccine for medical reasons.

Vaccines and tiers – all your questions answered

Billionaire vaccine evangelists Bill and Melinda Gates have topped off the global effort to roll out a shot against the novel coronavirus as some question the vague clinical trial results of the Gates-funded Pfizer jab.

Prof Kelman said “vaccine passports” are not a new idea, with proof of inoculation against yellow fever or polio a requirement to enter some countries.

“One difference here is proof of vaccination for daily, local activities – a debate which is long-standing, such as mandatory MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccinations to attend school.

“This issue was reinvigorated last year after a measles outbreak at London schools and some places do have mandatory measles vaccinations for children attending school.

“A proviso is if it turns out that there might be some certified medical reasons for being unable to take the vaccine. A system of verifiable exceptions would be needed.

“As the minister indicates, for people who choose not to take a vaccine, then they can also choose not to participate in activities which demand it.”

Coronavirus UK: Jabs at your GP in two weeks .
GPs were last night told to prepare to receive doses in the week starting December 14, with care homes across the UK expected to receive the vaccine in the same week.
