As Covid vaccines were prepared at Sunnyside Medical Centre, the first person with their sleeve up ready to get the jab was the man who started it all there. 92 year-old former doctor Bart Curtis was in flying form as his son David administered the vaccine, one he had been looking forward to getting for some time.

'I'm delighted to finally be done,' he said. 'Being 92, I was in the first group for it and living next door, I didn't have far to come! I was looking forward to getting it and I thought the sooner the better. As we know, the coronavirus has a terrible effect on older people and it can kill. Those that it doesn't kill, it can completely wreck their lungs.'
