Fears of discrimination will increase as British companies move to impose coronavirus vaccines on employees

Some British companies plan to give their employees a drastic choice this year. Get the coronavirus vaccine or lose your job.

There are no open areas, no pharmacies. Rural communities in the United States are facing the decline of vaccine recognition

URGENT, V. (AP) – When Charlom Pierce looked for where his 96-year-old father could get the COVID-19 vaccine in January, he found zero options near their home in Virginia. There was no single medical clinic in Surry County, the last pharmacy in an area of ​​about 6,500 people, a larger plot of land than Chicago closed years ago.

To get their shots, some residents took a ferry across the Ames River to cities such as Williamsburg. Others drove for more than an hour to farms and forests when the county received its first traffic light in 2007 to reach a medical facility that offered the vaccine.

For a moment, Pierce heard about a state vaccination event 45 minutes away. There were no other appointments, which was for the best. It was expected that the wait would last seven hours.

“It would be a terrible task,” he said, referring to his father’s health և frequent use of the toilet. “I could not force him to get in the car and wait for something to happen. We are not in a third world country. “

As the nation’s coronavirus campaign moves from mass vaccination sites to pharmacies and doctors’ offices, vaccination remains a challenge in “pharmacy deserts” for residents of communities without pharmacies or well-stocked medical clinics. To improve accessibility, the federal government has partnered with 21 companies to operate free pharmacies or drugstore services inside grocery stores and elsewhere.
