Covid 19 vaccine: Hope for the elderly

Close to a million people have been vaccinated in Northern Ireland and it is believed that as a result fewer people are in hospitals with Covid-19 and the death rate is low.

This has brought tremendous hope to the older generation in particular who are more susceptible to the virus.

Whilst others have been able to go to shops, or more recently visit their local pub, the guidance for old people has remained the same: stay at home.

But with the ongoing success of the vaccination programme, this could soon change.

Richard, his sister, Susie, and brother-in-law, Clifford, share their thoughts on receiving their first dose of the vaccine and what it could mean for them in the long-run.
