Covid vaccine priority for the elderly will save lives, extend life expectancy

  • February 26, 2021

A small but vocal minority, however, has argued against vaccinating the elderly as a priority, arguing it is critical to shield younger people from the virus as they will be the ones to rebuild and restore the economy once the pandemic is over.

Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith, 81, made this point last year when she said: “If I were choosing the priority group to receive the vaccine straight away, it would be the young people who earn money to keep the economy going.

“I’ll probably eat my words if I get Covid, but I feel that if you’ve had a good life, and your life is nearly over, that it’s the wrong group to prioritise.”

The celebrity chef has since received both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and has strongly encouraged people to get the “painless” jab.
