COVID-19: From a tiny island garden to a historic cathedral - the pictures behind the UK's vaccine rollout - Today News Post Today News || UK News

A picture of a man getting a coronavirus jab in his garden on a tiny British island is among a collection of images showcasing people behind the national vaccination effort.

The previously unseen photographs capture moments across the UK in museums, stadiums and cathedrals over the past few months as efforts continue to vaccinate the nation against COVID.

Taken by photojournalists Jude Palmer, Glenn Edward and Liam McBurney, the series of images showing the size and scale of the nationwide vaccination programme have been published by the government ahead of a new campaign urging under-50s to get the jab.

Also among the photos are smiling portraits of vaccinators and volunteers, a bird’s eye view of socially distanced patients awaiting their jabs in Salisbury Cathedral, and an elderly couple holding hands at a vaccination site in Ulverston, Cumbria.
