A mother has said it is “a Christmas dream come true” after her two children, twins Orin and Olivia Arthur, have had their first Covid jabs. The seven-year-old twins have Pompe disease which affects organs such as the heart and lungs. They have been shielding at their home in the Highlands for 22 months along with their parents Lyndsay and Stephen Arthur – but have now been jabbed after the UK government said vulnerable primary school children aged five to 11 should be offered a low-dose Covid vaccine. The Arthurs believe the twins are the first under 12s in Scotland, and possibly the UK, to have the vaccine. “My wife is still buzzing,” says Stephen.
