Young people can only expect the jab next summer, while the vaccination of care home residents and their staff is under way.
Yente wasn’t expecting the offer and hesitated at first but when he weighed up pros and cons, he soon decided to go ahead. He’s studying health and well-being sciences at secondary school and did an internship at a care home last year. When he saw the acute need in care homes he decided to volunteer. He soon found an opportunity at the care home in Wachtebeke where he is a logistics care worker. That means he takes round the meals and makes the beds.
Yente will get his jab when the vaccines arrive but expects that to be as early as this week.
