Island ready to receive covid vaccine

Ashford says gov't was warned, and storage is available

Storing a covid vaccine at the necessary 80 degrees below wont be a problem for the Manx Health Service.

The Health Minister, David Ashford, says the Island was given a warning some time ago that the production and distribution of such a vaccine might not be too far off.  

That means that if and when the vaccine becomes available, storage on the Island at the right temperature  will be available.
