BBC: How will the world vaccinate seven billion?

Sharing is Caring!

… What about the logistics of rolling out a vaccine to seven billion people worldwide? In the UK, the heart of that effort is at the Harwell Science Campus, on an ex-RAF airbase in Oxfordshire. It is going to be the UK’s Vaccines Manufacturing and Innovation Centre (VMIC), plans for which have been brought forward by Covid-19.. Hoping to have it online in 2021,” Prof Peters has been talking to global food and drink companies to explore borrowing cold chain storage to help with this mammoth project.

To make the vaccine roll-out more manageable, countries will have to work out who to prioritise in their populations…

The UK is looking at a template which uses its network of polling stations as a way to process the population.

And all this is because of a virus with less than 1% infection rate? Yeah right.
