Covid-19 vaccine

Several Covid-19 vaccines have been found to be effective at preventing severe illness and in December 2020, Leeds Teaching Hospitals started its vaccination programme. I attended a session on Wednesday 16th December and helped consent and prescribe the Pfizer mRNA vaccine to care home staff. I managed to receive a spare dose that would otherwise have been discarded. Hopefully this is the start of the recovery phase now fingers crossed.
