mass vaccination program but he warned against complacency. the pool of food to relax neurons and so my message would be it's amazing to see the vaccine community it's amazing to see this tremendous shot in the arm for the entire nation but we call the food to relax and. the u.k. has ordered enough of the bio tech vaccine to inoculate 20000000 people with millions of arrival shots also expected officials say vaccinating the population will take months but they will have to contend with facts and skepticism risk is what the long term effects but. i would take it. as a benefits outweigh the risks seems sensible thing to do and it's the only way we're going to add to the pandemic i would say. sharon's to see. everything that you think is your truth on facebook health experts are agin the

government to actively tackle misinformation it is extremely important are these people get the vaccine so we need to find a way how to communicate it to them and how to in a way isolate them from these damaging examples of misinformation that they sing on social media. as margaret keenan returned to her ward she did so to a wall of applause a celebration of humanity's triumph in this bleakest of years. a very consequential day for the u.k. lesser taken out of the times charlotte shell some pill and a lander in charlotte this has been the moment so many people have been waiting for who will get the vaccine this year. well the government here lately has been really keen to stress that this is going to be a marriage then and not a sprint people who are you younger less vulnerable shouldn't expect to have this
4:05 pm
vaccine anytime soon at the moment it's a point of people like margaret keenan as we heard in that report people who are over a c. who are likely who are in hospital who are expected as out patients in hospitals they'll be coming in to the hospital just like the one behind me for that vaccination it will also be open to have homework is and i n h s frontline staff as well this will be a slow process but like you say it's one that the whole world is watching other countries considering this vaccine want to know how logistically the u.k. is doing and of course how the u.k. plans to win over hearts and minds over it well let's talk about what you just referenced the logistical challenges facing the u.k. public health officers there because the vaccine has to be stored at minus 70 degrees celsius however they overcome that a cold storage challenge. yes there are
4:06 pm
a number of logistical challenges with this particular vaccine you mentioned one that the temperature but also needs to be sought but also transporting it as well is another challenge that's why these machinations initially in taking place at these hospital hurts because they have the facilities in place but the governor has said that they want to roll them out further ultimately the plan is to have mass vaccination centers for doctors to be able to to do the vaccines as well but a lot of eyes here are on the care home residents of course this is something that other countries as well will be watching to see what the u.k. done because it's not possible at the moment for care home residents just sickly to come into these hospital hughson right now the vaccine can't come to them so it is expected in the coming weeks that will be addressed after all they are among the most vulnerable in society to this virus and they have suffered so greatly this year and charlotte there are also some cultural challenges that the government will
4:07 pm
have to deal with according to some polls a 3rd of the population in the u.k. is worried about the safety of the vaccine and say that they're going to take a wait and see approach when it comes to taking it what is the car for what is the government planning on doing to change these perceptions. well the u.k. is no different to any other country in the fact that enthusiasm for a vaccine isn't universal for a lot of people they think it's come quite quickly and as you say they want to take a wait and see approach but the the whole basis for this vaccine to to work is that it needs to be based on trust so the government here is planning to launch a p.r. campaign to get people on board with this vaccine a number of the older celebrities at this stage a lot of them famous in the u.k. well as well i won't name them then obviously internationally famous but they've signed up to say that they'll be 1st in line for the vaccine to try and boost confidence and that of course one there you famous lady there's
4:08 pm
a lot of speculation that she might be her vaccination might be publicized and that is the queen and people expose ping that say once people see that the queen's had a vaccination of course she is very much over 80 over the threshold that a lot more people will get on board but what is so key to this is that the campaign here is not just getting out the message that this vaccine is in place but also deciding who the messages are this isn't something that can just come from government is going to be people who are trusted by the different demographics that are trying to be targeted but along with side the push of people to take this vaccine the governor is also walking quite at the line because it really wants to stress that while we might have this vaccine now the fines against 19 is not yet over is going to be a long time before enough of this a vaccination for it to make a real difference so while this is a big step towards normality the u.k. isn't there yet shall the child some people reporting from london thank you so very

4:10 pm
having me on i don't think it's inevitable but it is a necessary choice that we have that we need to make as a society and also as a middle decision makers the reasons are very obvious the reasons are that we are any. number of insurgents we have every day many 100 not many but hundreds of people dying and also we have a hospital and medical system that is really pushed to its limits and now we are entering the already season and of course the holiday seasons we tend to behave in a way that is unfortunately very crude duces to the spread of the virus. up what would you prefer to see happen now. what i would prefer is indeed what we recommend in the statement by the you do you know which is the heart knocked over the holidays and the way we describe it is be described as a 2 step process
4:11 pm
a process that already starts on december 14th in which we basically recommend people to start working at all home office and also to lift the obligation to attend school so that parents can actually decide to keep their children in total and also start digital education as much as possible that would be the 1st and the 2nd step starts on december 24th 2 might awaits all of us why you start 10 days earlier because in the 24th you may meet. the family members whom you haven't seen in quite some time and of course at that point you want to make sure that you are not spreading the virus or that you don't have to sometimes and on december 24th what we are recommending you start all the stores that are not absolutely necessary such as pharmacies and stores being closed and that we have a relatively art don't until january 10th. now joy has been so
4:12 pm
hard to come by this year is it not too onerous to ask people to work less not celebrate holidays with their loved ones to protect them. yes and you're totally right of course it is a risk to our system to do that but let me point out 2 things 1st you do still possible that you really spend the holidays with the closest member of your family so with their real loved ones. should be very intimate celebration also you can reduce the risk if you do what we recommend you start the 1st phase of self karma caught yourself on december 14th so that you can be quite certain that you are not symptomatic by the time you meet your closest senate members and very importantly the current at the time of their knocked all is meant to be short its heart and short but that also gives us a perspective for the months to come and also for returning to

4:14 pm

written consent allowing them to be given frequent coronavirus tests the plan is to test but the mayor scrapped this benchmark citing new research showing that few transmissions appear to occur among young children nonetheless reopening the nation's largest public school system in the midst of a sharp spike remains a gamble. the united states just saw the deadliest week of the kovac 1000 pandemic since april with 15000 death and health officials are warning that worse weeks may lie ahead. without substantial mitigation the middle of january can be a really dark time for us. most other big city districts are sticking to online teaching for now but they're watching to see how this reopening goes to decide if they'll follow the risky path laid by new york city. let's take

4:19 pm
year all right so how much of a concession is this by the british government to the e.u. and does this mean breaks a deal can still be salvaged. well the onus on to to that is maybe it's definitely a positive sign a gesture of goodwill and it can help. improve the atmosphere in the actual talks between the u.s. the e.u. and u.k. on the possible trade agreement it can help restore trust but we're hearing from politicians in the european parliament that there are not sure about that damage has been done that they don't know if they can trust the u.k. and their government and of course some voices here are also saying that it could be an excuse for boris johnson to say ok we know showed this gesture of goodwill and if you is not ready to come from a instead we can just walk away so i would say that it can go both ways still
