Immensely proud of the way that the U.K. has led, and continues to lead, the Vaccine fightback against this Virus. We may very well have been “slow off the mark” in other ways, but certainly not in regard to vaccine development and administration. As the late, great, and now much lamented Captain Sir Tom Moore said - “tomorrow WILL be a better day”.

lift the lockdown and let vaccines deal with the over 70's.
Better to concentrate 4 jabs a year for the over 70's than try to vaccinate younger people that don't need it.
Yes because its only the over 70's that have died from Covid isn't? Oh no wait it isn't, people from all age groups have died so your idea goes straight out of the window, you selfish idiot! Removed

Witty is not responding to this abuse, which suggests the voice-over has been added to the footage & the fact there's no expected background street noise.

As he's not being abused, I'm surprised anyone would take it seriously.

They have been safety tested. And have undergone large scale phase 3 trials. Phase 4 trials are normally done after market approval when the drug/vaccine is in widespread use. Phase 4 trials are also know as post-marketing surveillance. The aim is to detect any unforeseen rare or long-term adverse effects. No steps have been skipped.
