Dear Megan,

Sorry that I am not interested in ordering this pack. I only follow mandatory directives from the government and this is the reason that I booked my vaccinations against my religious ethics of not harming the virus or my own body by injecting foreign particles into myself. The Queen said it would be selfish if I did not take the jabs and Portugal, Cyprus and India will not let me in when we go for our holidays .without the vaccinations.

Aart from that, and the mental health medications being enforced into me by Dr Odesanya, the Consultant Psychiatrist deputising for Her Majesty the Queen, I smoke cigarettes, take atorvastatin, Tamsolusolin and Finasteride for urinary complaints on the enforcement from my wife to keep the peace in the house as she is my State-appointed, or at least recognised, Carer. So that is enough compromise of my religious persuasions.

I hope the Department of Work and Pensions will reconsider my long-standing complaint of not paying me Personal Independence Payments so that I can then resume my donations to 38 Degrees for all the good work that you do.

Please understand where I am coming from.

Yours sincerely

Dr Shantanu Panigrahi

PS. Give my regards to Dahir and Meg at 38 Degrees.

Shantanu, you're incredible. In 2020, time and time again, you helped protect our NHS as it works to protect us all throughout the pandemic. Thank you.

Now, in 2021, we can finally see the end of the pandemic in sight. But there's something else you can do today, to help get us there sooner and help out our NHS once again.

By spreading the message locally that when all of our turns come, we should get vaccinated! To help protect ourselves, our families and our NHS.

By clicking the button below you can sign up to receive a poster, resources on how to talk about the vaccine, and even a tote bag championing it! You'll then get a chance to chip in to cover the cost of your pack.

So, Shantanu, are you ready to help out the NHS again?



Thanks for everything you do,

Megan, Jonathan, Ellie, Sana and the 38 Degrees team

In case you missed it, here's the earlier email:

Dear Shantanu,

Did you see the news? The Covid 19 vaccine has been proven to drastically reduce the number of people suffering from serious illness and hospitalisation, as well as saving lives. [1] It’s excellent news. We could soon be seeing our loved ones again, and life could start getting back to normal.

If we’re going to protect as many people as possible from this awful disease, we need as many people taking the vaccine as possible. But while scientists, medical professionals and other public figures are urging the country to get vaccinated, some people are still yet to be convinced.

Research has shown that WE, all of us reading this email, Shantanu, are the best messengers to help reassure our friends, families, and people in our local communities that the vaccine is safe, and that they should take it when their turn comes. [2]

So, Shantanu, the British vaccine effort needs you! Will you sign up to champion the vaccine to those around you today? We’ll send you a free pack of resources - including a poster and a tote bag - so if someone you know needs to know more, you can help them. Click the button below to sign up for a pack and, if you can, you'll have a chance to chip in to help cover the cost once you've signed up:

Below is a preview of the poster, tote-bag and stickers you will receive in your pack, as well as a list of everything else that will be sent your way!



If you sign up, here’s what you’ll be sent in the post:

📃 A window poster showing our pride in the vaccine programme

🛍️ A tote bag with a message of encouragement to share


Versatile stickers that you can place where you like

📖 An information pack with resources you can share, and advice and guidance on how to reassure your loved ones

📱 A digital resource kit to enable us to spread the message in our local community

We all know the difference reassurance and encouragement from a friend or family member can make - this is how we can all help Britain get vaccinated!

Will you sign up to be a vaccine champion today? You can be there if a friend or family member needs someone to talk to before getting their vaccine - so we can all start getting back to normal.


Thank you for everything you do,

Meg, Michael, Jonathan, Megan and the 38 Degrees team

P.S. We know that due to pre-existing health conditions not everyone is able to get the vaccine. So if that applies to you, and you’d rather not hear about the campaign, let us know by opting out of receiving related emails here:

P.P.S. 38 Degrees is a campaigning organisation with a small office team and so doesn't have the facilities of an online giant like Amazon. Please be patient with us after you make your order, we will try our best to get orders out to you as quickly as possible! To ensure as many households get a pack we’re limiting orders to one pack per household, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please also note, packs will not be shipped outside of the UK.

The Guardian: One vaccine dose gives high protection from severe Covid, evidence shows

[2] The Independent: Many trust what their friends post on social media more than experts, poll claims

Science Business: UK: people trust medical advice from family and friends more than evidence from research

Sky News: COVID-19 vaccine: Stars bust myths in video urging people from ethnic minority communities to get the jab

BBC: Coronavirus: Black MPs unite in video to encourage vaccine take-up

The Guardian: NHS asks all over-70s in England to book Covid vaccine appointment

38 Degrees wouldn’t exist without you, Shantanu.

38 Degrees has no big donors - we’re funded by ordinary people who care, like you. Regular donations mean that we can plan future campaigns, pay our staff a decent wage, and keep fighting for what we all believe in. But we need 4000 new regular donors this month, if we're going to be ready to tackle 2021 together.

So, Shantanu, will you consider setting up a regular donation of a fiver, tenner or whatever you can spare?
