This series, How to Vaccinate the World (on BBC radio 4, 11.30 am ) has been fascinating. Especially today’s episode which is a discussion on how the vaccine will be administered and how long it might take.

It’s obviously not going to be as quick or straightforward as we might think. It could take up to a year before the majority of people are vaccinated.
But, of course there are the easier to administer vaccines, becoming available.

My 82 year old FIL with health problems was suppose to be vaccinated today only to be told today they have run out so can’t have it. So I looks like we will all have a long wait.

My cousin is a practice nurse in Oxon. Yesterday, she and her team, vaccinated 1160 patients during a 12 hour shift. Many patients said it was their best Christmas present ever.
