There was plenty of room in the vaccine line at Sheffield’s Crucible Theater early Saturday morning.

The first person arrived at 3 a.m. last Saturday. However, a walk-in vaccination service at the University of Sheffield’s Octagon Center appears to have absorbed much of the demand for vaccines among young people since then.

Mum-of-five, Mehbara Mammadova, 60, was the first in line this morning, having left her home in Manor Top at 7 a.m.

She had 18-year-old Jack Green of Millhouses for company starting at 8 a.m., with the couple joking that they “had become best friends” after chatting in the queue.

“I came here last week and the queue was going all the way to the Millennium Gallery,” said Jack

Mehbara and Jack befriended each other in the meantime.

“I think my mother will be happy [I’m getting vaccinated]. “

Handsworth’s Charlie Hickey was also turned away last week, but the 18-year-old was all smiles after securing third place in the queue despite arriving just after 8:30 a.m.

“I don’t like needles but I don’t mind,” added the prospective college student.

Charlie Hickey was third in line for a jab.
