It is extremely good news that Care home residents and NHS staff will be first in line for the Pfizer Covid vaccine when they start vaccinations in the near future, with rest of the population to follow in stages based on most vulnerable first.

It certainly has been a tragic year with thousands of deaths lost to a horrible pandemic, also with all the misery people have suffered losing their jobs and businesses.

If the vaccines prove efficient and we get our lives back it will be akin to winning a war against a deadly adversary. I think the economy will bounce back as well because people will just want to get out there and enjoy life without the threat of a transmissible virus hanging over our heads.
