Virtual tours of vaccine centres available for those who feel nervous beforehand

Report by ITV News Meridian's Richard Jones:


People on the learning disability register are now eligible for a covid-19 vaccine, but the process of going for a jab can be stressful for some.

Now, a Hampshire charity is producing virtual tours of vaccine centres, so they know what to expect beforehand.

The result is a series of videos and virtual tours of vaccine centres created by the charity Enable Ability with the support of Solent NHS Trust.

The project is called 'What's It Like?' and the aim is to show people what happens when they go for a jab.

All the videos and tours are available online and can be viewed by anyone who's nervous about what to expect.

With everyone needing a first and a second jab and with possible boosters in the future being vaccinated might become part of our lives.

Being able to find out "what it's like" can only make the process easier for anyone who's anxious.
