The 15 sharpest responses to the government’s excuse for stopping vaccinations at 8 pm
With almost every part of the UK in lockdown, people are looking to the vaccines to provide a way back to something a little more like normal life. Currently, vaccinations are being administered for 12 hours a day, from 8 am to 8 pm.
A Downing Street spokesperson gave their reason for not offering the jab around the clock.
No 10 says Covid vaccinations could be delivered late into the night, but insists there's currently 'not a clamour for jabs after 8pm'

What the fuck is this. We’re currently legally fucking obliged to remain indoors, who’s worried that their lifesaving vaccine appointment will clash with their plans for 9? https://t.co/OrC5G2gGwH

If you've spent all day homeschooling/working, 8pm is PERFECT! Who did they ask? Someone called "Peter McLunchbreaksonly"? https://t.co/ivxLcj6Zc9

This is so true, get a vaccine during the night? I'd rather just sit indoors for a year and a half. https://t.co/j10BxlWXyB

From the government that brought you economic carnage and some of the worst excess death figures on earth, we won't be doing vaccinations after 8pm because it clashes with Inside The Factory with Greg Wallace. https://t.co/6YCQQAf9g9
