New Volunteer Terry had his first shift at the large Vaccination centre at the Roche Pharmaceuticals Building in Shire Park, Welwyn Garden City last week. He was very keen to get started and dropped us a little message to let us know how it went. Terry said “It was extremely well organised; people were really please to be getting their jab and there were loads of thumbs up and smiles. Numbers were lower than hoped, but I am sure that will build up. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned. I have two sessions booked for next week and looking forward to it.” We’re glad his first day went smoothly and he is looking forward to the next. We thank him for his all of his support and think his colour coordination is spot on.
