I’m often asked if I have had my COVID vaccination. Along with my 92-year-old Mum, I’m pleased to say we both have had the Astra Zeneca vaccination. I am grateful to the scientists and health professionals who made this possible. My grandmother nursed during the Spanish flu pandemic. My mother nursed during polio outbreaks. Vaccines for these diseases weren’t available then. If you have doubts about the COVID vaccines, I would ask you to talk it through with your GP.
