Sharing is Caring

One Dr. Roshan Ravindran has informed clients that they will have to wait for their turn to receive the Covid vaccine. No shortcuts. The good doctor owns a private clinic in Wilmslow, Chesire and has on recent occasions been offered money. He indicated to them that in Britain it is only NHS which provides the vaccines. The European country has pre-ordered an excess of 355 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines.

It is so unfortunate that the wealthy are attempting to bribe doctors in order to skip the queue for coronavirus vaccine.

Currently, only NHS is providing the vaccines. However,  numerous British doctors have reported that wealth Britons as inquiring for the jab at a fee.

‘People inquiring of it often have had a relative who has passed away – the virus hasn’t been selective,’ the doctor told The Sunday Times. 

‘It’s priceless. I have people with almost infinite money, who would do anything because they’ve had relatives pass away with Covid,’ the doctor added.

Britain was the first country to approve the vaccine produced by Pfizer-BioNTech at the start of December. UK has also pre-ordered 100 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and that too is expected to be approved soon.

Doctors are already predicting that vaccines will arrive at the private health facilities soon. It has been reported that some companies are charging £20,000 for the jabs.

The earliest the private supplies are likely to hit the UK market is from April 2021. It is so sad that even during national emergencies some rich people would want to jump the queue to get the vaccine.

‘It is important that elderly and vulnerable people receive the vaccine first, but once that process is up and running, private practice may have a crucial part to play in mass roll-out,’ he said.
