He got a first dose of the Oxford/Astra vaccine at HMP Frankland, County Durham — while many people aged 56 and over, plus prison staff, still await theirs.
A source fumed: “If he has an underlying condition not many people know about it.
“Most officers have not had anything, and they have to deal with people like Huntley every day.
"As seems to be the way in this country, we appear to be bending over backwards to ensure criminals are looked after.”
How is it right that a man convicted of two child murders is being prioritised ahead of vulnerable citizens?
The Government aims to give first doses to 32million people in priority groups by April 15, before getting to those in Huntley’s age group.Huntley is serving a minimum of 40 years at HMP Frankland, DurhamCredit: Alamy Huntley was stripped of jail privileges for attacking an officer two years agoCredit: Rex Features
David Spencer, of the Centre for Crime Prevention, said: “People waiting patiently for their vaccine will be shaking their heads in disbelief.
“How can it possibly be right that a man convicted of two child murders is being prioritised ahead of older and vulnerable citizens?”
Ex-caretaker Huntley killed Holly and Jessica in Soham, Cambs, in 2002, and is serving a minimum of 40 years.

Inmates including House of Horrors killer Rose West, 67, and pop paedo Gary Glitter, 76, were also jabbed recently.
We can reveal Milly Dowler’s murderer Levi Bellfield, 52 and also at Frankland, plans to refuse his jab. He has told pals: “I don’t need or want it as I’ve already had the virus.”
A government spokesman said of Huntley’s jab: “Prisoners are being vaccinated in line with the priority groups set out by the independent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation — no further, no faster than the general public.”
