SERIAL killer Levi Bellfield has been sent an invitation to have the Covid jab ahead of millions of elderly and vulnerable Brits.
The 52-year-old murderer — whose victims include Milly Dowler, 13 — has been told he and some other inmates at top-security Frankland Prison, Co Durham, could be vaccinated in the coming weeks.
The news comes as innocent Brits in their 80s, vulnerable people, frontline workers and teachers still wait for the life-saving vaccine.
Former Home Secretary David Blunkett said: “It beggars belief that prisoners, let alone a child murderer, should be given any opportunity for an early vaccine dose.
“I hope the Justice Secretary will step in immediately and find out why scarce vaccine doses are being deployed in this way — and whose idea it was.”
Bellfield, 52 — who murdered 13-year-old Milly Dowler as well as two women in separate attacks — told pals he had received a note about the jabs.
But he moaned: “This should have happened already as it can spread like wildfire in prison and we are in danger.”
‘JUMP THE QUEUE’
Another lag in his 50s at Frankland, Co Durham, has also received a message from the jail’s healthcare department.
It reads: “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.”
Meanwhile, Prison Service internal documents reveal jabs will be given from tomorrow, based on public health criteria.
Former Detective Colin Sutton — the cop who finally nailed Bellfield — said: “It is appalling he and other prisoners should apparently jump the queue ahead of ordinary people and, especially, essential workers.
“Prison staff, police officers, teachers, shopworkers and delivery drivers — people who are keeping us going — should be prioritised.”
A prison source said: “For whatever reason, Bellfield and other inmates have received this note about the vaccine.
“People think it is wrong, because they would not have had anything if they were on the outside and would be way down the list.”
