Cambridge United players join the call for everyone to get vaccinated

by Karen Mason | Jul 09, 2021

As Covid-19 infection rates rise across Cambridge, players from Cambridge United get their jabs and urge everyone to get vaccinated now.

Mark Bonner, Head Coach at Cambridge United Football Club said:

“We visited the Grafton vaccination centre today to get the remaining lads from the first squad jabbed, so the whole team has now had their first vaccination and will be going back as soon as they can to get their second doses.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our fans back to the Abbey Stadium when that’s possible, so if you’re 18 or over and haven’t had your vaccination yet, get it booked now, or visit one of the walk-in clinics across the City so we can all get back to normal together.”

United’s captain, Greg Taylor added: 

“We all felt pretty invincible when we were promoted to League One at the end of last season, but no-one is safe from Covid-19.  

“Young and old alike need to get their vaccination – if someone you care about is nervous, get your jabs together.  It’s quick and painless, and it could save your life.”

Matthew Winn, Chief Executive, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, which runs the large scale vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough said:

We’re delighted that Cambridge United has joined our call for everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible.  Given the increase in cases of the Delta variant, it’s vital that people get the best possible protection from Covid-19 with two vaccine doses.”

“Millions of people are now benefiting from protection from the virus and this has contributed to dramatic falls in infections, hospitalisations and deaths across the country.  But rates of infection in some areas, including Cambridge, are rising. We need everyone who hasn’t had their first vaccination to get it now, and to follow this up with their second vaccination 8 weeks later.”
