Just in: 70% of shielding UK musicians will not play until vaccinatedmain
Joint research by the Musicians’ Union and The Ivors Academy in the UK suggests that 70% of musicians, songwriters and composers who are shielding do not feel they can return to work until they are vaccinated.
Almost all respondents (95%) felt the Government lacked a clear plan on how to get them back safely to work.
The survey organisers do not reveal how many musicians took part.
As of last night, the UK had vaccinated 15.3 millon people, a quarter of the population. Of these 539,630 have now had a second jab.
