Downing Street has said the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine in the UK will go to care homes residents starting from next week.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “The JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) has published the updated prioritisation list and said the people in care homes are the most vulnerable given that age is clearly the biggest risk factor with this virus.
“They also said that while it is right that every effort should be made to supply vaccines to care home residents there will some flexibility and that deployment will be a factor.
“What the prioritisation list shows is our determination to make sure the most clinically vulnerable receive it first.”
