Army promoting vaccines in hot spot areas, as lockdown easing approaches

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Army promoting vaccines in hot spot areas, as lockdown easing approaches” – below is their description.

Volunteers and members of the army have been encouraging people to get the coronavirus vaccine in West London and Bolton.

June 21st, the date the Prime Minister said all restrictions on social contact would be eased, is only three weeks away.

But now there are growing concerns that because of the spread of the more transmissible Indian variant, this date maybe pushed back.

So now efforts have been made to step up vaccine uptake, to try and stay ahead of infection rates.
