Coronavirus UK news – Covid ID cards unveiled as first vaccines arrive in hospitals ready for jabs tomorrow

AS jabs arrive in hospitals ready for tomorrow, Covid ID cards will be handed out to every Brit after they have had their vaccine.

The first of 50 UK hubs received the vaccine on Saturday as an NHS boss declared it was “the beginning of the end” of coronavirus.

Information on the credit card-sized ID items will include the type of vaccine, its batch number and date it was administered.

A bolded-up message reminds patients to note the date of their crucial follow-up dose.

The details plus the patient’s personal information will then be registered on an NHS database.

Croydon University Hospital, South London, became the first UK hub to unpack and cold store the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine on Saturday.
