The importance of the vaccination programme

Annie McDowall, Share's Chief Executive, shares her personal experience of COVID loss and reminds everyone of the importance of the vaccination programme currently being rolled out in the UK.

Getting the vaccination is optional but it is important to stop people getting ill and to prevent the virus spreading.  Sadly there is a lack of easy read information about the vaccine as well as unreliable information circulating online.

We've provided a few links below to NHS, Public Health England and other information from the Government with information about the vaccine.
