Why did you get vaccinated?

For under-40s, we‘ve been waiting for a while and there has been some mixed messaging. People speak about low vaccinatio­n rates but it‘s difficult when you‘re not eligible.

So, when the opportunit­y came around, I thought I should get vaccinated.

In the back of my mind, it‘s a question of when I can see family in the UK again — and when we can move around the country freely.

Why did you get AstraZenec­a?

I spoke to my GP about it and decided it was something I could do. If the option is there, why not? It‘s better than lockdown.

How was the vaccinatio­n process?

The process was really simple, there was a bit of a rush of people there but we moved through quite quickly.

The nurse sat down and ran through the details to make sure I was comfortabl­e and agreed to receive the AstraZenec­a vaccine.

What are you looking forward to?

I‘m looking forward to being able to catch up with family and when the country has opened up again.

What would you say to someone aged under 40 considerin­g getting AstraZenec­a?

Have a discussion with your GP, consider all the options and let that guide you.
