Rose West given Covid jab invite in prison and will get vaccine ‘in weeks’

Rose West has been invited for a Covid jab in jail.

Britain’s most prolific murderess, serving ten life sentences, will get the vaccine in the coming weeks.

Morbidly obese Rose, 67, is one of several lags to have received a letter this week saying they will get the injection.

It is thought Rose, who is at HMP New Hall, west Yorks, will be given the dose toward the end of February.

A prison source told us: “Several prisoners have received a letter this week inviting them for vaccines.

“They will be given in order of priority in line with public health which will be elderly first then the vulnerable.

“It is most likely Rose will fall into a category receiving vaccines towards the end of February.”

Injections will be carried out by NHS or private healthcare workers in prison medical units.

An MOJ spokesperson said: “The Prison Service has been gearing up for the roll-out given the logistical challenges it presents.

“This includes letters to staff and prisoners, to make them aware of the order and how it’ll operate on the ground.”

The letter from HMP Prison Service sent to a string of prisoners said: “In January/February 2021 we will be receiving the Covid-19 vaccination to distribute to our vulnerable/priority patients.

“Due to the criteria set out by Public Health England you will be eligible for the vaccination.”

Rose is thought to have a string of health conditions due to her ballooning weight.

On Friday, Prisons Minister Lucy Frazer said cons would not receive jabs “over and above or in any sort of priority against those in the community”.

West helped husband Fred murder ten girls and women in the 1970s and 1980s at their Cromwell Street home.

The evil pair raped and tortured the women before burying their bodies in the garden of their house in Gloucester.

Rose, who also murdered her daughter Charmaine, was jailed in 1995.
