#OneYearOn … since the first COVID-19 vaccine was administered

Posted on: 8 December 2021

Today (8 December) marks one year on since the first COVID-19 vaccination was given outside of a clinical trial in England. 

It is an opportunity to celebrate the monumental achievement of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme; to thank staff, volunteers, partners and community groups who have been crucial in its success; and to encourage those who have not yet received their first vaccine to come forward and get it.

To mark this milestone, we are asking everyone to share what having the vaccine has enabled them to do in the last year on social media using the hashtag #OneYearOn and @THGPCareGroup.

You can film and share a video, image or post explaining how being vaccinated has meant you’ve been able to see family and friends, go on holiday, or even how it has given you some peace of mind during a particularly difficult time. The campaign is about thanking everyone for making it happen and, most importantly, encouraging others to get vaccinated. 

If you know someone who hasn't booked their vaccine yet, they can book their appointment online here.
