The reason some young people haven't gotten vaccinated for Covid has puzzled researchers. In Scotland, the adult age group with the lowest vaccination rate is the 18 to 29-year-olds.

The double vaccination rate is lowest in those aged 18 to 29 at 34 per cent with the rate increasing with age. Well Pharmacy commissioned research to explain the gap, reports Wales Online.

Their study revealed that one in six (17 per cent) of 18 to 25-year-olds are reluctant to be vaccinated because of 'needlephobia' - four times the figure in people 55 and up.Younger millennials and Gen Z appear more worried about the possible side effects of the jab.A further 30 per cent of under-35s fear an adverse reaction, compared to under four per cent of over-55s.All evidence suggests any such effects are mostly mild.Those who do suffer post-vaccine side effects claim they only saw a mild headache or fever, both of which are normal symptoms to be found after any vaccine.

'Oh the tangled web’ Piers Morgan slams Djokovic as photo emerges a day after Covid test
Piers Morgan, 56, reacted to a photograph of Novak Djokovic surrounded by young tennis players which was shared the day after his lawyers claim he tested positive for Covid.The photograph was taken at an awards ceremony in Belgrade, Serbia, and Djokovic can be seen standing with young people who are holding tennis trophies.It is unclear when the event took place, but the photographs were shared by the Tennis Association of Serbia on December 17, as reported by Sky News.Djokovic’s lawyers say he had tested positive for Covid a day earlier.They are reportedly planning to use the test in question to validate Djokovic’s medical exemption which would enable him to enter Australia without being vaccinated.Upon hearing the news, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to jibe at the tennis champion.The journalist wrote: “‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…”The quote comes from author Sir Walter Scott’s nineteenth century poem Marmion.Piers has previously praised Australia for denying Djokovic’s entry into the country.He told his 7.9 million followers: “The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in Covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous sports stars should play by the same rules as everyone else.“He has the right not to be jabbed, and Australia has the right to chuck him out for making a dodgy visa application."The 20-time Grand Slam winner is still being held in a Melbourne detention centre after his visa was cancelled upon arrival into the country.He was told he didn't meet the country's entry requirements due to his vaccine status.Djokovic has not revealed whether he has been vaccinated or not, although he has been critical of mandated vaccines in the past.Court documents released on
