The arrival of the coronavirus vaccine is providing a breath of fresh air and hope in many countries. The United Kingdom, the country most affected by the pandemic in Europe, is considering going very far in the fight against covid-19, for which it has planned to vaccinate a million people per week to sharply stop the infections.
The British country plans to use football stadiums and conference centers to carry out a massive vaccination campaign against SARS-Cov-2. The initiative will take place from the beginning of 2021, British media reported on Thursday.
The unprecedented campaign will seek to immunize all adults in England, according to to the British newspaper The Guardian
“We seek to vaccinate as many people as humanly possible as quickly as possible. We want the country to return to normalcy as soon as possible, which would allow us to open up the economy, ”said a Health Ministry official quoted by the British newspaper.
Between 200 and 500 injections a day will be given in each of the 1,560 community vaccination centers throughout the country administered by GPs, while another 2,000 daily doses will be injected in various high-capacity facilities that are not used due to the pandemic, such as stadiums, community centers, and conference centers.
