NHS

Insight: Around 22 million people in the UK still haven’t got the COVID-19 vaccine. The rates of infection are still high in the country and match the total of new cases from December last year – right before the country went into full lockdown. More than 100 people are dying each day.

Challenge: How do you encourage people to get the vaccine? What are different ways to look at the problem?

Idea: You wouldn’t drink and drive.
