UK health service in talks on rollout of potential covid vaccine from December.
The UK government had proposed in August to allow more healthcare workers to administer covid vaccines
- There is debate on whether the first people to be vaccinated will be care home patients and their staff, or health care professionals, including general practitioners.
The National Health Service (NHS) is in talks with the British Medical Association (BMA) and others around mobilising the rollout of a potential COVID-19 vaccine from December, Pulse website for health professionals reported.
There is optimism around the first cohorts being given a vaccine in December but there is a 50/50 chance of the vaccine being available by that time, Pulse reported, citing a person close to the discussions.
Talks are taking place between NHS England, the BMA and other groups over who will administer vaccines and who will receive it first, Pulse reported, citing multiple sources.

NHS England, BMA and Department for Health and Social Care did not immediately respond when contacted by Reuters on Thursday.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday there were some hopeful signs that a vaccine would be secured for COVID-19 but that the country must be realistic because it could not be taken for granted.
