Covid-19 vaccination: which nursing staff get top priority?
The Nursing Standard reports that NHS England and NHS Improvement guidance on which healthcare staff should be prioritised for the Covid-19 vaccine in England has been published. It states front-line staff and nursing students at high risk of acquiring infection, of developing serious disease, or of transmitting infection to vulnerable people or colleagues should be the priority for vaccination. It follows the Prime Minister’s promise that everyone in the top four priority groups – including front-line health and social care workers – will receive the first dose of the vaccine by February 15 2020.
