THE Government has revealed the locations of its Covid-19 vaccine hubs, as the rollout is expected to begin next week after the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was approved yesterday.

More than 50 hubs will be set up across the country at NHS Trusts, allowing an easy way for people to get the vaccine at a centralised location to protect people from Coronavirus, which has killed almost 60,000 in the UK since March.

According to documents published by the NHS, the Great Western Hospital Trust has made it onto the list of vaccine hubs.

But a spokesperson for tbe NHS said it could not confirm any locations.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation and the North Bristol NHS Foundation Trust also made it onto the list.

Those in care homes and aged 80 and over are expected to be at the front of the queue, potentially being vaccinated this month, and care home workers and health and social care staff are also a priority, because they could transmit the virus to some of the vulnerable patients in the care.

As well as the vaccination hubs, vaccines are also expected to be available in hospitals, from GP surgeries and care homes. The NHS is also recruiting some 30,000 volunteers to help roll out the vaccine.

The timeframe for vaccinating all adults - some 50 million people - in the UK is currently unknown. 

NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens said: "This is an important next step in our response to the coronavirus pandemic and hospitals will shortly kick off the first phase of the largest scale vaccination campaign in our country’s history.

"The NHS has a proven track record of delivering large scale vaccinations from the winter flu jab to BCG and, once the final hurdles are cleared and the vaccine arrives in England’s hospitals, health service staff will begin offering people this ground-breaking jab in a programme that will expand to cover the whole country in the coming months."
