Thousands of hospital staff to be deployed in mass inoculation with jabs by GP surgeries
It's a very misleading headline -- it refers to just one component in a far larger campaign.
This is in addition to their normal workload, of course, which includes dealing with Covid-19 and all that goes with it -- it is an herculean effort.Thousands of hospital staff will join the drive to vaccinate all adults in England against coronavirus and will be deployed at mass vaccination centres to give the jab to up to 5,000 people a day, NHS officials involved in the plans said.
The NHS intends to use football stadiums, town halls and conference centres in England to inoculate at least 2,000 people each day.
The new facilities will be additional to the 1,560 community-based vaccination centres run by GPs, which will dispense 200 to 500 jabs a day. All the venues will do temperature checks on people before entry allowing space for social distancing and a 15-minute recovery time.
