Nightingale hospitals across England could be used for mass vaccination should the Pfizer vaccine drug be approved.
The Prime Minister’s spokesman said that “it is one possible way of allowing significant numbers of people to be vaccinated.”
He also said that the Nightingale hospitals in Sunderland and Harrogate are now “ready to take in patients if necessary,” and four other hospitals are on standby.
Sir Simon Stevens who is the NHS England chief executive said last week that the potential vaccination programme could be delivered at the Nightingale hospitals, GP’s and mass testing centres.
