Rich Britons leave for the UAE to get vaccinated out of turn – Rossiyskaya Gazeta


At a time when “ordinary” citizens dutifully await their turn for the coronavirus vaccine, London’s super-rich are leaving the country, leaving for a month on “vaccination holidays.” You can combine business with pleasure by lying by the pool, where a nurse comes up to you to inject the vaccine into your forearm. And this at a time when millions of citizens without funds are patiently awaiting letters from local doctors indicating the date of the upcoming vaccination.

In Dubai, a month-long “vaccine” vacation, which includes a first-class flight, a 5-star hotel and injections of two doses of covid vaccine, costs VIP clients from £ 40,000, and sometimes many times higher. Until recently, everyone leaving Britain for a long time required to go through the COVID-19 vaccine. But today this rule does not seem to work.

In January, the Knightsbridge Circle concierge service made headlines around the world. The agency announced that those who become its members will be able to fly to the United Arab Emirates for vacations and vacations. The company said without undue modesty that it pioneered a new vaccination program for wealthy travelers: “You go to a villa in the sun for a few weeks, get your vaccinations, and a certificate and it’s done,” said the founder of Knightsbridge Circle. Membership fees alone are £ 25,000 a year.

Knightsbridge Circle’s clients are said to include CEOs of the largest companies, successful entrepreneurs, royalty, and celebrities of all sorts. “For the past two weeks, we have been vaccinating in the UAE using Pfizer and Sinopharm vaccines. We can start introducing AstraZeneca vaccine in India,” said CEO Stuart McNeill. McNeill told The New York Times that his “club” has received more than 2,000 membership applications, as well as thousands of phone calls and online inquiries. The interest in the company was allegedly so great that several private airlines, interested in transporting customers, approached it.

Meanwhile, doctors in the US say some of Hollywood’s super-rich stars are trying to “bribe” faster access to vaccinations.
