The best Christmas gift is to receive boosters
This is a comment from Jonathan Van-Tam
That day a year ago, we were missing the one thing we needed most in our fight against COVID: an approved vaccine to roll out to the British people.
Tomorrow, a year ago, everything changed. The 2sd December 2020, our regulatory body, the MHRA, became the first in the world to approve the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine; a few weeks later, the AstraZeneca vaccine was licensed.
A great deal of work had led up to this point, and a great deal of work followed to put those vital jabs in the arms.
It was a real turning point in the battle against the pandemic. The 8the In December, just 6 days after approval, Margaret Keenan became the first person in the world to receive a deployed dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Over 115 million vaccinations later, we can see the powerful impact vaccines rolled out in the UK (Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca) have had in saving lives, reducing serious illness and putting pressure on the NHS.
The huge delivery of vaccination by the NHS and volunteers, and the huge uptake of vaccination by all of us has kept us coming back to a lot of the things we love.
Right now there is uncertainty again, because of the new Omicron variant and what that will mean. Scientists have always been clear that variations will occur.
