Coronavirus vaccine and PSP & CBD

This week the UK became the first country in the world to approve a coronavirus vaccine, with a roll out planned for as early as next week.

The vaccine, developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, is given in two injections, 21 days apart, and has shown to offer up to 95% protection against coronavirus.

The first vaccinations are likely to take place at hospitals for care home staff, NHS staff and patients, as hospitals have the facilities to store the vaccine at the correct temperature.

Mass vaccination for everyone over the age of 50 can begin in 2021, as soon as stock is available. You will be invited to receive the vaccine, probably by letter, by attending your local hospital, a vaccine hub or your GP surgery.

People living with PSP or CBD, should contact their GP to find out more about the vaccination priority group. Age, vulnerability by chronic illness, or for some residency in a care home, are all relevant factors for prioritisation. Your GP will be able to clarify, when more is known about the specific plans for vaccination in the UK.
