UK to offer virus vaccine to over 18s in hotspots

British authorities announced on Thursday healthcare workers in some areas of Blackburn, one of the hotspots when it comes to the spread of the Indian strain of COVID-19, will offer people aged 18 and over Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE's vaccine against the disease.

According to Sky News, those regions will be Bastwell and Daisyfield, Billinge and Beardwood, and Shear Brow and Corporation Park.

The news comes as an extraordinary move influenced by the circumstances, as the United Kingdom has so far been inoculating its population by age groups. Earlier in the day, the authorities opened vaccination appointment booking for those aged 38 and over.
