In front of all EU states, Great Britain wants to start nationwide vaccinations against Corona on Tuesday. First, people over the age of 80, employees in nursing homes and particularly endangered medical personnel are to receive the funds from the Mainz manufacturer Biontech and its US partner Pfizer. 50 clinics are to serve as vaccination centers. The logistical challenge is great because the medium has to be cooled at minus 70 degrees Celsius.
Great Britain had rushed ahead last week and had given the vaccine approval earlier than all EU countries by means of emergency approval. In total, the country has ordered 40 million cans. Because two vaccinations are required per person, 20 million British people can be vaccinated with it, a little less than a third of the population.
