The NHS has published an invitation to tender for logistics and warehouse support for a Covid-19 Vaccination programme, however the contract start date is the 1st January 2022.
The population of the United Kingdom is allegedly 66.65 million according to 2019 Office for National Statistics estimates. We’re told that as of the 24th July 2021 55% of the entire population has been fully vaccinated, and 14% of the entire population has been partly vaccinated. This equates to 36.65 million people who are fully vaccinated, and 9.33 million people who are partly vaccinated.
This means that as of the same date, 20.67 million people have not received a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in the United Kingdom. However, approximately 14 million of these people are children who are not eligible to have a Covid-19 vaccine, except for 12 – 15 year olds who will outrageously, soon be offered it if they have disabilities or learning difficulties or are living with someone deemed to be vulnerable.
This leaves just 6 million adults in the United Kingdom who have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, approximately 9% of the entire population of the United Kingdom. However, as of 19th July 2021 the UK Government confirmed that every single adult in the United Kingdom had been offered the Covid-19 vaccine. Therefore, apart from children who they are coming for next, the vaccination programme is essentially over once the remaining 14 million who’ve had just the one jab receive their second.
Which is why it’s strange to find that on the 21st July 2021 the NHS has invited companies to bid for Logistics and Warehouse Support for a Covid-19 vaccination programme.
