Serial killer Levi Bellfield has reportedly been offered a coronavirus vaccine – but the Ministry of Justice insists that prisoners are not getting preferential treatment.
The 52-year-old inmate, caged at top-security Frankland Prison, Co Durham, told friends he had got a note about the jab, The Sun reports.
The twisted killer murdered Milly Dowler, 13, and students Amelie Delagrange, 22, and Marsha McDonnell, 19, between 2002 and 2004.
Bellfield supposedly said: “This should have happened already as it can spread like wildfire in prison and we are in danger.”
Part of the letter he received 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.”
According to Prison Service documents seen by The Sun, jabs will be given from Sunday, January 24.
Bellfield, along with other prisoners at HMP Franklin, could reportedly be vaccinated in the coming weeks.
However, the MoJ dismissed claims that lags are receiving preferential treatment.
It said in a statement: “The NHS is legally required to vaccinate prisoners in eligible cohorts, such as those over 80, in line with guidance.

“Prisoners will not receive the vaccine ahead of their cohort.
“To suggest prisoners are being treated any differently to the general public is completely untrue.”
The NHS also told Mirror Online : “No prisoners have received the vaccine yet but the NHS is legally required to vaccinate prisoners in eligible cohorts, such as those over 80, in line with the JCVI guidance.”
Back in July, one of Bellfield’s ex-girlfriends said he was a real-life Jekyll and Hyde.

Joe Collings lived with the monster for three years long before his vile crimes were revealed.
But even before he turned killer, she was stunned by how his personality would switch from being charming to extremely violent.
On Channel 5 documentary Levi Bellfield: 5 Mistakes That Caught A Killer, Joe said: “The beatings became really frequent and more and more violent.

“The rapes then became really intense with him on a regular basis. If you rearrange the letters in Levi’s name it spells ‘evil’. And that’s exactly what he was.”
Alarm bells rang for Joe when she happened to find his “rape kit” at the home they shared in south-west London.
She said: “I came across a black binliner that had a Vogue or Cosmopolitan-style magazine and when I looked through it, all the blonde models’ pictures had all had their faces slashed or stabbed.
“Also in the bag was a balaclava and a knife. I called it his rape kit.”
