Petition Prioritise COVID-19 vaccines for first responders (police, fire, ambulance)
The British Government need to prioritise and deploy the COVID-19 vaccine to First Responders alongside NHS workers. First Responders are at a higher risk of contracting and transmitting COVID-19 due to their increased level of exposure with the general public every day and lack of regular testing.
First Responders risk their lives every day to keep the public safe. Prioritising vaccines to First Responders alongside NHS workers will:
• Ensure protection and safety of their health whilst carrying out their jobs on the frontline
• Lower the risk of easily contracting/transmitting COVID-19 to co-workers, their families, and the general public
• Help retain personnel and reduce sick-leave
• Increase public confidence knowing that First Responders have been vaccinated ensuring public safety
