Give them a chance.
They may be able to do it but not just yet.

You'd need something like this.
I personally think they could have mobilised all the possible services available and brought vaccinators from retirement.

It makes sense to stop this in its tracks and prevent variations occurring.

"Covid: Over 65s in England to be offered vaccine | ITV News" https://www.itv.com/news/2021-02-12/cov ... ed-vaccine

People aged 65 to 69 will now be invited for a Covid-19 vaccine in England as long as supplies permit and if GPs have done all they can to reach those in higher risk categories.

As long as supplies permit? We've plenty of vaccine, what excuses are the government using now?
