UPDATE 22/6.2021 IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUR 18-39 YEAR OLDS THAT ARE NOT YET VACCINATED AND UPDATED INFORMATION ON WALK IN CLINICS THIS WEEK
WHY SHOULD YOUNG PEOPLE bother with the vaccine?
LONG COVID
Long Covid, is a life-changing condition that is even now not properly understood. However, what is apparent is that it can affect younger folk, and leave them with a life-changing condition, possibly far into the future.
VARIENTS AND MUTATIONS
A virus evolves to survive and seek new hosts as fast as it can. The vaccine is your friend, even if it is only partially effective against new mutations.
Real world data iis showing that the vaccines are effective on the Indian or delta variant, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was 94 per cent effective against hospital admission from the delta (Indian) variant after one dose, rising to 96 per cent after two jabs. The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine was found to be 71 per cent effective against hospital admission after one dose, rising to 92 per cent after two jab
VACCINE PASSPORT TO TRAVEL
Unless you want to spend the rest of the best years of your life holidaying exclusively in the United Kingdom – plus the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, or only countries that do not require a passport and never see the rest of the world – then you’ll be needing a vaccine passport; and for that you need a vaccine.
NIGHTCLUBS AND FESTIVALS
If you want to go out and boogie all night you need to get the vaccine as otherwise all nightclubs will be subject to frequent outbreaks of the virus and will be subjected to lockdowns and closures
“YOUNG BRITONS. YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU. JOIN YOUR COUNTRY’S VACCINATED ARMY!”
Last, you will be doing your bit for your generation (and yourself) by helping ensure there won’t be any more lockdowns. If vaccination rates slump too low, then fresh waves of Covid are more likely – and so are depressing lockdowns to try and control any outbreaks.
Any jab must surely be preferable to that, mustn’t it?
TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT CALL 119 OR BOOK ONLINE
If you are 18 or will be 18 before 1 July 2021 you can now book your Covid-19 vaccination on the national sites. You will need to travel to Shrewsbury, Telford or Oswestry.
