The people of Bucks have shared their views on a Covid-19 vaccination centre opening in Aylesbury.

The centre, which is based at the town’s BNU campus on Walton Street, officially opened on Monday, February 8, for patients who have been invited by either the Government or a GP to have the vaccine.

It was the first one in the town to be organised by Oxford Health.

On Facebook, John Stone said: “Had mine this morning [Feb 8] and I was amazed how quick it was, nothing like I had expected.

“Will admit, I was concerned, now, I don't know why.

“My advise to anyone: You will feel better for doing it.”

“GO ON!”

Margaret Austin said: “I had mine three weeks ago and I know people that had the virus and they said they would not wish it on anyone, so be safe and go and get it done.”

Guy Gratton added: “I plan on being about three hours early waiting in the snow.”

Danielle Lennonthen said: “I have a child, as such, I will be having it!

“So that I can hope that I am that little more protected from dying.

“I watched my mum die (from cancer) and I would never ever want my child to go through that, especially as young as he is.

“I was 33 when my mum passed.

“I don't know if there are any long term effects, but I'd rather take that risk if it means I will be around longer for my child.


However, despite the vaccination centre opening in Aylesbury, some people have expressed their concerns.

Several Bucks residents have claimed that they will not get the vaccine if offered with one saying it was due to not knowing ‘what the long term safety of it is.’

Steve Crucial said on Facebook: “We don't know what the long-term safety of it is.
