Encouraging vaccination – every little helps

It has never been so important that globally every one of us should make arrangements for Covid-19 vaccination.

Lots of approaches are currently used across the UK including TV and radio adverts, press adverts, posters, leaflets and more.  But now, it’s all gone one step further.

In Germany, tasty bits of bread did the trick for about 700 sheep and goats to join their drive to encourage more people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The animals were arranged on Monday into the shape of a roughly 330-foot syringe in a field at Schneverdingen, south of Hamburg.

Shepherd Wiebke Schmidt-Kochan spent several days practicing with her animals, news agency dpa reported. But she said in the end, it wasn’t difficult to work things out — she laid out pieces of bread in the shape of the syringe, which the sheep and goats gobbled up when they were let out into the field.

Great fun, and hopefully a very positive message delivered in a memorable way.

Well done to all concerns, especially Shepherd Wiebke Schmidt-Kochan and all of her sheep and goats!
