Doug Port , 78 receives his vaccine .
“It has been very important to me obviously , I haven’t been out now for a really long time so i appreciate the doctor being able to come to the house and do the vaccination, it’s really great , it’s really great . I’m still going to be careful and wary because of the situation , so we’ve really still all got to be on our guard, we can’t relax too much in any way shape or form but it does give you a tad more freedom .”
