Before all EU states, Great Britain wants to start with nationwide vaccinations against the corona virus today. Initially, people over 80 years of age, employees in nursing homes and particularly endangered medical personnel are to receive the product from the Mainz-based manufacturer Biontech and its US partner Pfizer. 50 hospitals are to serve as vaccination centers. The logistical challenge is great because the vaccine has to be cooled at minus 70 degrees Celsius.

Russia was the first European country to start large-scale vaccinations against the coronavirus in Moscow on Saturday. Vaccinations are also already being carried out in China. Initially, vaccines from domestic manufacturers will be used. In Great Britain, vaccinated persons will receive a vaccination card as proof of vaccination, which will also serve as a reminder of the second vaccination date about three weeks after the first one. For most people, however, it will be a long time before they can be vaccinated, according to the National Health Service (NHS).

Great Britain had pushed ahead last week and earlier than all EU countries had given emergency approval for the vaccine. In total, the country has ordered 40 million doses. Because two vaccinations are required per person, 20 million Britons can be vaccinated with it, slightly less than a third of the population.
