The first Covid-19 vaccinations in the community have been administered this morning in Manchester.
Barry Williams from South Manchester was one of the first people to get the vaccine at the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre in Wythenshawe today.
Barry commented after getting his vaccine: “It’s been quite exciting. There’s a lot going on. It’s fine, really. Glad I’ve got it.
“I try to go shopping at 7.30am every Saturday to get what I need. When I get the second dose in a few weeks it should allow me to do a bit more.
“I have absolute confidence in the medical profession and the scientists that have made it. Hopefully it will keep me alive! Main objective is to avoid getting Covid – like the whole country ought to be trying to do, really.”
