London to open 24-hour vaccination centers

The first 24-hour coronavirus vaccination sites will open in London before the end of the month, said Nadhim Zahawi, the minister in charge of vaccine deployment. He told Sky News on Monday that the sites will be used as a trial for opening a larger number by the beginning of February.

Zahawi said the government aims to "target forensically who we want to protect," explaining that citizens over 80 tend to come in for vaccination during the day, but that other age groups could prefer nights or early mornings. However, he warned that there is currently a "limited supply" of the vaccine and that it is the priority of the government that it gets "into the arms of the most vulnerable."
