Many families, young and old have suffered physically, financially and emotionally. Many families have had to sacrifice the lives of their loved ones. We thought as the Burlington Primary Care NHS family that we would come together to say thank you and to ask you to continue the journey with us . The vaccine has provided a light at the end of this very long tunnel. We would just like to thank you for your effort on the journey so far and to ask you to help us finish our journey and have the vaccine when it's your turn. We would like to thank the science family of professors and researchers who have given us safe and effective vaccines. We would like to thank all the clinicians and other NHS staff who have sacrificed their lives from around the world for the NHS We would like to thank all of the drivers and other key workers who have delivered food to those most in need and will deliver the vaccines to all corners of the earth and all corners of this country when the time comes. Once again thank you all health workers thank you all our key workers.
