EXPERTS say the UK could return to normality by Easter if we don’t screw up the vaccine rollout. Here’s how Matt Hancock will screw up the vaccine rollout.
Leave it until it’s too late
Staying true to form, Hancock will fail to learn from our European neighbours as they order the Pfizer vaccine in shedloads. Instead he’ll drag his heels for weeks then appear astonished when it’s run out. If only there was some way this could have been predicted?
Get useless Tory cronies to do it
Instead of leaving the vaccine rollout to NHS doctors or local authorities, Matt will give control of the process to a dubious company called VaxxiPro that sprung up a fortnight ago and has a tiny warehouse in Essex. And whose MD, purely coincidentally, is a Tory party donor.
Only purchase tiny quantities
Screwing up the vaccine is a great opportunity to lower the proles’ expectations for the NHS. If communities are forced to pull together and make homemade remedies from Night Nurse capsules and Calpol it will get them ready for what the NHS will be like post-Brexit.
Fundamentally misunderstand vaccines
After zoning out while Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance walk him through the rollout with the help of dreary slides, Hancock will vaccinate the population in a hopelessly piecemeal way, leaving Covid to run amok. Then he’ll use the inevitable third lockdown to do the same again but with a glitchy app.
Do a seemingly decent job for one day then call it quits
Having made ambitious claims about how many people will be vaccinated per day on Sky News, Hancock will fudge the numbers before admitting only 150 people have been treated. Expected vaccination numbers will plummet and the Nightingale hospitals will be converted into KFCs.
