One of the most poignant vaccinations in Manchester has taken place after a Whalley Range pharmacist gave his 79-year-old dad the Covid-19 vaccine.

Aneet Kapoor, the owner and director of Kapoor Pharmacy Services as well the chair of the Greater Manchester Local Pharmaceutical Committee, has been at the forefront of supporting community vaccination efforts in Whalley Range.

Mr. Kapoor vaccinated his dad, Suneel today (January 21) who has spent much of the past year shielding due to being in an at-risk age group.

He will be the first of many patients who will receive their vaccine at the Whalley Range Cricket and Tennis Club. This site is one of many venues that have been repurposed as local vaccination sites.

Aneet said: "It was an emotional moment.

"It’s been a very difficult year. I live very close to my dad, only a few doors away, but at some point over the last 10 months it’s felt like we’ve lived 4,000 miles away.

“It feels now like there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
