SHOULD we send coronavirus vaccines to other countries who need them, before vaccinating younger adults here?
That’s the question some in the UK are asking, after it was predicted that the UK will end up with lots more jabs than we need – after buying around 5.5 doses per person.
Trade Secretary Liz Truss has said that Britain cannot simply become a “vaccinated island”, while COVID-19 rages in other nations in the world.
“We’re only going to solve this issue once everybody in the world is vaccinated,” she explained, but said that it was “too early” to suggest what might be done with the extra vaccines.
The debate began after the European Union suggested that it could block millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses from entering the UK – before the EU quickly turned its back on the idea.
What do you think? Should the UK vaccinate all Brits before helping other countries out?
