Vaccinate NHS staff as a priority

Prioritise NHS workers in the rollout of the COVID19 vaccine

Why is this important?

The COVID19 pandemic has brought death and misery to the UK. As of 15 November 2020, this has included the death of at least 200 NHS workers. The rate of infection from corona virus is much higher in NHS staff than in the general population throughout the country. As a consequence, NHS workers are much more likely to become ill or die from this virus. As another consequence, they are also more likely to unknowingly transmit the virus to other people, including their patients.
A mass vaccination campaign is starting this week. The vaccination campaign should prioritise NHS workers. This would keep safe those who look after the health of all of us. As a result, this would also make the UK population safer.
