The race to vaccinate 14 million people by mid February is on, and the PM has announced some pretty big news. 

The government recently announced that 7 mass vaccination centres will be opening next week.

The centres will be opening in London, Manchester, Surrey, Bristol, Newcastle, Birmingham and Stevenage.

The exact dates and times of opening aren’t yet available to the public, but the prime minister’s spokesperson said: “They are opening next week.

“It may be the case that some open on a different day to others, but they will all open next week.

No10 said the seven centres are:

  • Robertson House, Stevenage
  • Excel Centre (Nightingale), London
  • Centre for Life, Newcastle
  • Etihad Tennis and Football Centre, Manchester
  • Epsom Downs racecourse, Surrey
  • Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol
  • Millennium Point, Birmingham

Reports also suggest that there will be more than 7 centres for vaccination in the future, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet.

It’s nice to see some positive news regarding the pandemic for once, but that’s not to say we’re out of the woods yet. The PM announced just this week that over 1 million people in the UK are currently infected with coronavirus, with cases rising by around 50k every day.

But regarding the vaccinations, it’s said that volunteers and NHS workers will be giving the doses out.
