The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles has thanked all those who have been involved in the development of the vaccine, during his visit to Salisbury Cathedral.
Prince Charles said that people can “look forward with renewed hope,” ahead of the vaccine being rolled out on Tuesday at dozens of hospitals.
The future King of England said, “As we gather here, we are profoundly aware of all those who have gone before us, who have bequeathed us the magnificent legacy of this glorious building, and who have maintained the spiritual community which has kept the flame of faith alive here for so many centuries.
“Over the years, that faith has sustained this city and this land through many trials and has done so through the many months of the pandemic we are currently experiencing.
“Over the years, each challenge in turn has been overcome, and that is the case today when, thanks to the inspiring work of all those who have been involved in providing vaccines, we can now look forward with renewed hope.”
