Versapak support the NHS with COVID-19 Vaccine roll out
Versapak manufacture a range of Insulated Medical Vaccine Carriers to store or transport vaccinations. Our carriers are unique as they feature VersaShield™ Antimicrobial Protection, helping to stop the spread of microbes.
What do we know so far?
With just a few trial results published, the outlook of a vaccine is promising. There are two main vaccines in the running:
The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which creators announced was 90% effective after stage three trials. Forty million doses have been ordered by the British Government which the Prime Minister says will vaccinate one third of the population. This is set to be given to the most vulnerable people in the UK.
Secondly is the Moderna vaccine, which is showing nearly 95% protection. Five million doses (enough to vaccinate 2.5 million people) will be available from next spring if it is successful.
The Government’s strategy is to set up mass vaccine centres to inoculate the people, as well as plans for large and small mobile sites, while GP surgeries and pharmacies will also be used and roving teams of healthcare professionals will visit care homes and people who are housebound.
