"Volunteering at the vaccine centre"

About: City and Hackney GP Confederation / Covid-19 vaccine programme (Bocking Street site)

(as a volunteer/advocate),

Having signed up for some volunteering shifts at Bocking Street Vaccination Centre, I was offered the vaccine and I jumped at the chance. The staff and volunteers at the centre are fantastic - very friendly and they put everyone at ease. I was so happy to receive the jab as I see it as a first step towards regaining freedom and emerging from the nightmare of the pandemic. I would urge everyone who is eligible to have the vaccine to get it - it is a remarkable scientific achievement and the rollout has been superb. Credit to the medics, volunteers and everyone else who has been involved in it at all levels. I didn't feel a thing when the needle went in. I actually feel very emotional having just been vaccinated because it's such a wonderful thing - it provides me with hope after a difficult year

Thank you for the time that you have put in to making our covid vaccination programme work! We simply couldn't do it without each and everyone of you. So glad we have been able to give you a vaccination. Vaccinating the people who staff the centres keep both you and all the people coming through the centres safer.
