Prince William has joined the vaccination campaign to get people in the United Kingdom vaccinated. “A huge congratulations to all of you and for playing your part in such a monumental moment,” said Prince William in the video.
“My grandparents have had the vaccine and I’m very proud of them for doing that. It’s really important that everyone gets their vaccine,” he said. Noting that so far, health workers have administered 2.8 million vaccines.
Regarding the job done so far, the former British pilot said: “This is because we have a world-leading National Health Service, this is because we have the right people, the right research and development here.”
The frontline workers shared that the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine is the biggest public health campaign in their working careers. Another added that people had done their very best for good possible outcomes.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip received the first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine. According to People, Buckingham Palace announced earlier this month that Her Majesty and her husband, both in their 90s, are in the high-risk category, therefore, had been urgently vaccinated.
A royal source informed the outlet of the Queen’s decision to publicize the news. The monarch reportedly said that she wanted to prevent assumptions and inaccuracies.
News of their vaccinations came one day after Prime Minister Boris Johnson placed England and Scotland under a new national lockdown until mid-February. Johnson’s decision was based on a new and more virulent strain of the virus that has begun to spread.
The UK has approved both the Pfizer-BioNTech and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines. To ensure that everyone gets access to the vaccines, over a hundred vaccination sites and hospital hubs have been established across Britain to administer them.
Britain was the first western country to begin a mass vaccination rollout against the virus. According to ABC News, last month, the country began distributing the vaccine to its top priority groups, including frontline health care workers and people over the age of 80, among others.
Speaking of the vaccine rollout, Prince William noted that it would make a big difference in people's lives. The royal added that it is not something that happens easily and that everyone has access to around the world as he praised the health service for defying the odds.
