These pictures of young people getting the vaccine prove the government needs to shut up
Thousands of young people have rushed to receive their Covid vaccine early
Over 67 million people in the UK have received at least one dose of the vaccine. But amongst the mass roll out there have been numerous media reports and government campaigns claiming that young people need to ‘do our bit’ and accept the vaccine. But for us to accept the vaccine we need to be offered it.
Last month The Tab surveyed 25,000 young people asking whether they will accept the vaccine once offered it and found that 94 per cent said they do plan on getting vaccinated. Last week, this was proven true with thousands of young people queuing at walk-in vaccine centres at Twickenham Stadium and Belmont Health Centre, Harrow.

Queues were described as bigger than Glastonbury as up to 15,000 doses were offered to young people who had not yet been vaccinated.
On our way to Twickenham Stadium to get vaccinated 🥰
Anyone over 18 who can get there by 19:30 today can get a first jab!
