Three Covid-19 vaccines have now been approved for use in the UK. It means a lot of people are asking: “When will I get the Covid vaccine?” and ‘who is in the priority group?’ Immunisations with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and Oxford-AstraZeneca began on 8th December and 4th January for those in priority groups. Shots of the Moderna vaccine will not arrive until Spring 2021. Margaret Keenan, 91, was the first person in the UK to be given the Covid jab. BBC health reporter Laura Foster explains who is first to get the shot and why. Video by Laura Foster, Mattea Bubalo, Mel Lou and Terry Saunders.
