So the great news this week is that here in the UK a record breaking 493,013 people were vaccinated with the new Covid-vaccines on one day this weekend. I think I might have been one of them.
You can read the report in the Express Newspaper here:
News reports are claiming that around 75% of people over the age of eighty have now been vaccinated. When I went along for my jab. there were a lot of young people. I heard them explaining they were NHS staff, care assistants, pharmacy staff (like myself). We actually had an email on Friday afternoon asking us to make an appointment and to go along and get ourselves immunised.
Since the start of the pandemic, we have had no choice but to work closely with people, only reliant on PPE and good hygiene to protect us. So after seeing how many of our colleagues have tested positive with the virus and how many of them have been very ill, we were jumping at the chance.
So far, the government say that over 6.3 million have been immised, meaning they are on track to reach their goal of vaccinating 15 million people by mid-February.
