Yesterday it was announced the Covid-19 vaccine could be rolled out as early as next week- with NHS staff among the first to get it. Alongside the NHS, one of the first priority groups for vaccination will be elderly people in care homes and their carers. All trusts were asked to have a plan to vaccinate their workforces, with frontline NHS workers set to be among the first to be vaccinated.

Matt Hancock told MPs today that the health service is ready to administer vaccines following the news that the UK regulator has approved the Pfizer vaccine candidate for use. He described it as a 'monumental step forward' in the country's response to the pandemic.

The first vaccinations will be administered at NHS hubs in hospitals across the country. The NHS has published a list of around 50 trusts which will provide vaccination hubs, which you can find below.

The list was published in a letter sent out by to health officials last month in which it states: "All Trusts will need to have a plan to vaccinate their workforce. The preparations that need to be made locally will differ:

"• For Trusts who are also a NHS Trust Vaccine Hub your plans must cover how you will vaccinate your own workforce and how you will support neighbouring trusts to vaccinate their workforce.

"• For all other Trusts your plan must cover how you will work with your nearest hub to vaccinate your workforce if required, and how you would deliver the vaccine within your trust should this become possible. We are continuing to explore all available options to safely deliver the first available vaccine to all Trusts."

The UK Health secretary described the announcement as a 'monumental step forward' in the fight against Covid-19, with the first batch of 800,000 Pfizer vaccinations due imminently - enough for 400,000 people to be vaccinated. The Government has ordered a total of 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

Vaccines are set to be given in three settings- first at NHS Trusts with plans also for large scale vaccination sires and community/primary care jabs given at places like GP surgeries and pharmacies.
