Covid-19 Vaccination 2021

It has been over a year since the first Covid-19 cases were reported in the UK and there is no denying that the past 12 months has been an incredibly difficult period in history, one which we will never forget.

From the earliest outbreak of the pandemic to present date, Sheffielders, communities, local businesses, faith organisations, the voluntary, private, and public sector diligently worked together and continue to support one another whilst providing crucial services to our city. We are all grateful for all the hard work and sacrifices made to ensure that people who work, study, visit and live in Sheffield are safe.

We are nearing the time where we are starting to think about the future of our city, recovery and the continuous remembrance of our loved ones lost whilst being thankful for what we still have.

The national, phased roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine is gradually reaching those who need it the most. We thank those who have made this possible, those who have given their time and energy to save the lives of others.

This is by no means the end but together we are slowly reaching the light at the end of the tunnel.

The Covid-19 vaccine is bringing the hope we all need to move forward but let us not forget that social distancing and following government guidance is still our responsibility, to ensure that we continue to protect our communities and to keep each other safe.
