Independent TV: NHS prepares to begin coronavirus vaccinations

50 NHS hospitals are gearing up for the biggest immunisation programme in history, as the first doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine arrived at secure locations this weekend. 

Frontline healthcare staff, people over the age of 80 and care home workers will be among the first to get the vaccine as part of the first phase of the programme from Tuesday, which was approved for rollout by the UK’s independent regulator earlier this week.
