Everyone who lives in Bolton was invited for a Covid shot before 5:00 pm today amid concerns about the spread of the Indian variant.
Counselor Andy Morgan shared a tweet in which Britons of all ages were asked to “visit the vaccine bus” if they live in the area and are registered with a local therapist.
He said the medical team “will find a reason to get you vaccinated” before closing at 5:00 pm.
4000 pop-center hits must be used by the end of the day, added Heaton and Lostok’s advisor.
The area is seeing a spike in cases of the Indian variant of Covid, which currently accounts for the majority of its new cases.
As of yesterday, Bolton’s infection rate is the highest in the country at 192 cases per 100,000 people.
And government scientists fear the Indian variant could be 50 percent more infectious than the Kent strain, which could lead to 1,000 deaths a day and 10,000 daily hospitalizations by summer.

The prime minister has pledged to “ give up everything we have for this task ” and intends to send an army to the most dangerous points in Britain, including Bolton (vaccination center, pictured), to hand out tests in an attempt to slow the spread
Boris Johnson has pledged to “give up everything we have” to prevent infection with the Indian variant, and intends to send an army to the most dangerous points in Britain for testing to slow the spread.
Pop-up vaccination sites are also being created to speed up vaccination, along with accelerated testing measures.
Including in Bolton, where in today’s pop-up center at Essa Academy, queues loomed on the sidewalk while impatient locals waited for their injections.
Other areas where impulse testing is taking place in England include Blackburn, Sefton and London.
Public health data from England show a rise in the number of cases of the worrying Indian variant from 520 to 1313 this week in the UK.
Government scientists showed in protocols released Friday night that this option could be “realistically” 50 percent more infectious than the Kent strain — a simulation project could result in 1,000 deaths a day, as well as 10,000 daily hospitalizations by summer.

Labor shadow secretary Jonathan Ashworth accused the prime minister of “a reckless failure to defend our borders.”
Meanwhile, the vice chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunizations (JCVI) said the vaccines are “almost certainly less effective” in reducing transmission of the Indian variant.
But Professor Anthony Harnden said that the strain is not believed to prevent the vaccine from being effective in preventing serious illness.
He defended the approach of promoting second shots rather than speeding up their spread to young people, saying that targeting more vulnerable people with full immunity is “the best strategy.”
“Vaccines may be less effective against transmission and it takes weeks to develop immunity, so this is not a good strategy to prevent transmission, we want to prevent disease,” he said today.
“A vaccination strategy simply won’t help mass vaccination of a number of young people at the expense of unvaccinated older people.”

Cases of strain B.1.617.2, also known as the Indian variant due to country of origin, have more than doubled in the past week across the UK, with 1,313 cases identified by May 12, up from 520 in the previous week. …
The prime minister is pinning his hopes on defeating the virus with a flexible jab. But experts fear vaccinations are not the key to slowing the spread of the infection.
The vice chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunizations, Dr. Anthony Harnden, said today that the shot is “almost certainly less effective against transmission,” because immunity only works three weeks after vaccination.
He also stressed that while the vaccine protects against “serious diseases” and thus helps to reduce hospitalizations and deaths, countless vulnerable people and people over 50 still have not received the vaccine.
For people over 50 and those with a clinically vulnerable status, the introduction of the second dose of the Covid vaccine will be accelerated.
The University of Warwick’s model of a more contagious variant after complete retraction of isolation on June 21 suggests that any more than 30 percent increase in transmissibility over Kent’s variant could result in a peak in daily hospitalizations in August that will be higher than any other. first or second wave. In a worst-case scenario, with an option 50 percent more common, hospitalizations could rise to 10,000 per day, or even double that number (thick lines represent the central estimate, and thin lines represent possible upper limits known as confidence intervals)
Meanwhile, health spokesman for the Scottish National Party, Dr. Philip Whitford, warned that you “cannot avoid getting vaccinated against this option” due to the time it takes for immunity to develop if someone is given a shot.
And she emphasized that letting the virus “spread” among young people who have not yet been vaccinated could lead to more deadly variants.
Johnson warned England would face a “tough choice” if the Indian option proved to be far more prevalent than the others.
Even so, he announced last night that Britain would be pushing plans for indoor drinking and dining next week – and today ministers insist that changing the rules is “the safe and right thing to do.”
Monday’s easing will allow people to communicate at home, in homes, pubs and restaurants, and will also allow physical contact between households for the first time in more than a year.
