Workers crucial to vaccine rollout to be offered coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that up to 2,000 highly trained workers identified by the government as irreplaceable and crucial to the delivery of vaccine supplies are to be offered coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines in the near future. According to the department, this is to ‘reduce the risk of an outbreak that would disrupt the immediate supply chain’ of the vaccine rollout. Those eligible include Pfizer and AstraZeneca staff working in specialist roles in the UK, including those ‘making the vaccine substance, working on fill and finish and batch testing, as well as those involved in end-to-end coordination who are responsible for getting doses to the right place at the right time’.
