As someone recently Shielded and having an underlying health condition putting me at the top of the risk table I have the approach that I am relatively content to stay in voluntary isolation until a vaccination or successful treatment is available. I would consider it an unacceptable risk to leave my home without the assurance of having had a vaccination.

Why the contribution is important

The current scientific knowledge on covid-19 is so chaotic no one knows how long the virus will be around. We could be looking at months or years and so a vaccination is vital for the protection of the population. Only when a successful vaccination is available will the population be safe and in particular those at high risk.

    Yes, but is looking like a long, long road

    I totally agree. I am also shielded due to immunosuppression and would rather continue with the strict guidance, for our cohort, than risk catching COVID-19. I have grandchildren I cannot see other than on Zoom, FaceTime etc but I’d rather miss them a bit longer than not be here to ever hug them again.
