Some High Street pharmacies in England will now be able to start vaccinating people from the priority groups according to a recent announcement from the Prime Minister. There are 200 pharmacies in England that will be providing vaccinations in the next two weeks with pharmacists saying that many more sites should be allowed to give the vaccine, and not just the largest ones.
This move comes as part of the vaccine drive in order to reach to vaccination target of 15 million people by mid-February in the top four priority groups; namely NHS frontline staff, care home workers, care home residents, people over 70, and the clinically vulnerable.
As some pharmacies are now able to give the jabs, it’s important that these sites are taking the right precautions and safety measures to reduce the spread of infection, particularly for those that are vulnerable. While social distancing can help, the use of PPE and room dividers are essential.

We provide a wide range of COVID-19 secure room dividers and protection screens that can help pharmacies to reduce the spread of infections and make their site safer when administering the vaccine. It’s essential that pharmacies follow the government guidelines in order to continue operating safely while providing jabs to the vulnerable.
