Hancock said that there would be “three ways to deliver” the vaccine, with hospitals, mass vaccination centers, and doctors and pharmacists providing the vaccine to those most in need.
The NHS prepares for a multi-week mass vaccination program and can have as many as 1,500 general practitioner practices, and command centers ordered to open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, each distributing at least 1,000 strokes per week.
Under current plans, local groups will bring together from about five practices covering nearly 50,000 patients, known as primary care networks, to organize vaccine delivery and the health service hopes to immunize 1 million people per week.
However, any potential IPO would be limited due to the speed of manufacturing in Belgium, with plans to distribute “as fast as the company can manufacture”.
The Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Van Tam, also announced that the commissioning will take “months, not weeks,” which means that it is imperative to continue to follow the rules of the new degree system.
Professor Van Tam said, “Nobody wants to shut down. But if you want this dream to come true as quickly as it can be, you should take the vaccine when it is offered to you.”
The Armed Forces and the NHS have begun urgent preparations for the centers and have been informed of the need to complete them within two weeks, according to the sources.

According to England sources.

How will Pfizer’s temperature affect the vaccination program?
The vaccine will be transferred to GPs and pharmacists who can store the vaccine at -70 ° C that it needs to remain effective.
In response to criticism that the temperature of the vaccine will make it difficult to release around care homes, Professor Van Tam said it is “extremely unfair when one considers that a new virus appeared less than 12 months ago and we now have a vaccine.”
The deputy medical director added, “This is a complex product. It is not yogurt that can be taken out of the fridge and returned several times.”
However, the Scottish Minister of Health announced that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be delivered to residents of care homes in Scotland before December 14th.
