COVID-19 vaccines to be offered at theme parks

COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 vaccines will be administered at theme parks in England after their expected reopening date of 12 April.

Under plans announced by the UK government on Thursday morning, NHS nurses will be stationed at theme parks, where they will administer the injections to willing guests of qualifying age.

Nurses will be seated in circular boats of a number of low-speed, non-restrained rides, such as rapids water rides and larger monorail cars.

The nurses will then administer the coronavirus vaccines to any willing people in the carriage as the rides run as normal.

The qualifying age for the vaccine is currently set at 45, but will progressively reduce under the government’s vaccination plan.
