Would you be happy to accept a jab after midnight?

The NHS is running the biggest mass vaccination campaign in its history to protect people against Covid-19, with the aim to vaccinate top priority groups by mid-February and all adults by the autumn.

With more than 2.6 million people in the UK now having received their first dose of either the Oxford-AstraZeneca or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines the campaign has made a good start, but with some parts of the country slower to administer the vaccine than others the Government has come under intense pressure to step up the pace.

More than 32million over-50s could be vaccinated by the end of March under new Government plans to ramp up the jab roll-out, it has been reported.

The Government is said to be preparing to more than double the pace of the current programme next week to up to half a million jabs a day.

This led the Prime Minister to announce on Wednesday that the vaccine would be offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week as soon as supply allows.

The vaccines are being administered at hospitals, care homes, GP surgeries and vaccination centres with some High Street pharmacies in England to start vaccinating people from priority groups today (Thursday).

So, with Boris Johnson promising vaccines 24/7, would you be happy to accept a jab after midnight?

Bad luck in your area Sylvania. Have heard that in this area that everyone has a time slot, but if there is a hold up on the production line due to a prospective having an attack of the vapours, there is a marquee with seating and hot air blowers in place. also there is a rumour that the Church Army might set up a hot drink facility in that marquee.

I had to wait 1 and a half hours in the freezing cold and it was terrible, so after midnight no.

Absolutely, fully support 24 hour appointments, as long as the supply can keep up.

I’d go any time if it meant we could all get vaccinated as soon as possible.

It is important to vaccinate as many as possible as quickly as possible. I would get a mini-cab if I had to go during the night. After all, the jab is free,

If the appropriate staff are willing to work shifts to do the vaccine then I’m willing to go at any hour of the day or night to receive mine,

It depends whether there are sufficient extra staff to administer vaccines at night.These pople will therefore be sleeping during the day .They would potentially administer more injections during the day.Better I think to extend the day say from 6am to midnight with a day shift and a back shift of staff.

If it means helping to rid this country of such a life taking virus then definitely.

Depends on where they'd expect people to go and transport for getting there and back - I don't drive but if it is anywhere within a 30 minute walk I'd be ok with it.

It has been said that if you have a vaccine jab in the morning your body produces more antibodies than having the jab in the afternoon so bring it on!!

I think the government are doing a cracking job rolling out the vaccines and if they are doing it 24/7 I would not mind at all if we had to go and get the jab if it helps us all.

I can hardly say 'no' to this when I quite happily get up in the middle of the night to get 6am flights.

Not having my own transport is why I voted no. I'm not going anywhere at night on foot or on public transport.

Yes of course we all need to get the jab and get on with life. It looks like the UK is doing well with jabs at the moment. In the paper today they are saying all over 50s will have it by end of March.

I wouldn't care what time of the day or night it is so long as I get a jab asap.

Agree, its the only way to work through the identified age groups quickly and keep up with the second doses. Lets hope there is a steady increase in the supply and distribution systems.
