Mr Jackson says when the vaccine mandate was introduced on 17 December, he was unable to go to the pub with his friends.

“They’d all got their vaccines, and they’re all fine, so I thought it was time I got mine.”

‘We can beat this’

Cherbourg’s clinic is staying open seven days a week and has also begun to offer the vaccine to children aged five to 11 in line with the national rollout. 

While the town hasn’t been officially put into lockdown, local authorities are currently asking people to stay home as much as possible. 

“We’re telling people to stay home, wear masks, go down and get checked if you’ve got symptoms, and if you’re not vaccinated, please get vaccinated,” Ms Sandow says. 

More than 100 food and hygiene packs have been delivered by the Council, CRAICCHS, and charities including Fare Share and Foodbank to make sure each household is supported.
