People aged 65 or older should get Covid-19 vaccine on priority in Japan

Elderly aged 65 or older should be given priority to get vaccinated against corona in Japan.  A Japanese health ministry panel said people with underlying conditions including chronic heart disease, chronic respiratory disease and chronic kidney disease, among others, should also be given priority to receive the corona vaccine.

Meanwhile, in a fight against deadly coronavirus, the UK has already started the vaccination drive. According to the health department, over 600,000 UK citizens have received the vaccine against the coronavirus developed by Pfizer and BioNTech pharmaceutical companies.

A few days ago, the UK identified a new variant of the coronavirus that is highly transmissible. The variant known as the B.1.1.7 lineage may be up to 70% more infectious and more of a concern for children. After media reports, many countries across the world shut their borders and banned travel to the UK.
