UK: Queen will take Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine soon
UK: Queen will take Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine soon. The Queen will take Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in the next few weeks.
Overseas Network, December 6 The British “Daily Mail” reported that the 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth II and the 99-year-old Prince Philip will be vaccinated in the next few weeks with the COVID-19 vaccine jointly produced by Pfizer and BioNTech.
The report quoted senior sources as saying that after the vaccination, the Queen will announce the news to encourage more people to vaccinate. The report also said that neither the Queen nor Prince Philip will receive preferential treatment for the COVID-19 vaccine. They will wait in line for the first wave of vaccines prepared by the British government for elderly people over 80 and residents of nursing homes. Both will receive vaccination on the advice of a doctor.
Public health experts believe that once the couple announces the news of the vaccine, it will crack down on the “misinformation” about the COVID-19 vaccine spread by conspiracy theorists. According to reports, the misinformation spread by conspiracy theorists a few days ago may cause a considerable number of people to refuse vaccination.
On December 2, local time, the British Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency officially approved the COVID-19 vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and Baintech, Germany, for clinical vaccination, making the UK the first country in the world to approve the vaccine.
However, the UK crossed the finish line first, inciting a war of words between the UK, the EU and the US. While proudly boasting, senior British officials did not forget to step on the EU and the United States. The European Union and the United States questioned Britain’s rush to achieve success and lack of rigorous regulatory procedures. (Overseas Network Yao Kaihong)
