Dr Vinesh Patel and Dr Elizabeth Toberty of the DAUK's GP Committee ask hard-hitting questions at the Independent SAGE meeting on 19th November 2020.
They ask 2 important questions.
Dr Patel asks about the data behind the efficacy and safety of the Covid-19 vaccine, and what GPs should be saying to counsel patients who ask if they should get it now, or wait for a different vaccine.
Dr Toberty's question was regarding the already overflowing workload in primary care, and what will have to give in order for the vaccination programme to be delivered in the way it is currently being advertised. She asks if this is appropriate considering the rising excess mortality from Covid-19 and the disruption in service from 2 lockdowns.
Watch the clip to find out the answers from Independent SAGE, let us know your thoughts.
