As the number of deaths from the virus across the UK exceeds 100,000, British street pharmacies will begin rolling out the Covid vaccine.
The Boots and Superdrug branches will become one of six stores in England. They will be able to manage the thorns from Thursday, and the government aims to achieve the goal of vaccinating everyone in the four most vulnerable groups by the middle of next month .
Andrews Pharmacy in Macclesfield, Culimore Chemist in Edgware in North London, Woodside Pharmacy in Telford and Appleton Village Pharmacy in Widnes will join Halifax Boots and Superdrug from Guildford were injected together.
Boris Johnson also told members of Congress, “We will increase the distribution to 24/7 as soon as possible,”
The Scottish government released a vaccine delivery plan on Wednesday night, which included details on how many doses of vaccine it hopes to receive each week before the end of May, prompting a dispute with London, which declined to disclose the number.
The six pharmacies were chosen because they can provide a large number of vaccines and can be isolated from society. Health Minister Matt Hancock said that it’s great to buy pokes on the street.
He said: “The pharmacy is located in the center of the local community. It will bring a big change to our promotion plan and provide more local convenient locations for those who are eligible for the jab.”
NHS England said that by the end of the month, more than 200 community chemists will be vaccinated.
These pharmacies, along with 200 hospitals, about 800 GP clinics and 7 mass vaccination centers, have distributed lancets.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer urged ministers to go further and use 11,500 pharmacies in England to provide 24/7 vaccination by the end of next month.
As England expands vaccination services, the number of daily deaths in the UK hit a new high on Wednesday, with 1,564 deaths recorded within 28 days of a positive test.
The latest data shows that, according to official data, the UK has now exceeded 100,000 deaths related to the severe milestone of coronavirus.
