The Pfizer vaccine is the one that has to be stored at -70C - not many GP surgeries have that kind of freezer ;D

Also, once a tray has been started, the whole tray must be used - you can't re-freeze.

This may account for the delays or lack of vaccinations?

They said on the news yesterday that the Oxford one is the one that will be rolled out to GPs, so presumably most of us will receive that one.

I know as well that some GPs are sending out nurses to those who are housebound, and they will receive their vaccination that way.
