Jeremy Clarkson wants YOUR help to win the war on COVID
It's time to Join Jezza's Jabs Army and cure the 'lockdown blues' by helping out at your local NHS Clinic
Jeremy Clarkson needs no introduction around these parts. The Grand Tour presenter, Diddly Squat Farm owner and TV personality recently came down with a case of the Coronavirus, but thankfully has now made a full recovery.
Since his recovery, he has been getting himself well and truly involved in trying to bolster the ranks of the 'Jabs Army' - volunteers to help the vaccination effort in the UK.
"Well let’s not be bored — let’s get off our bottoms and volunteer!"
During a visit to a vaccination centre, he implored people to do their part: “Everyone is saying how bored they are. They’ve watched Netflix, gone through everything on the internet, read Google... Well let’s not be bored — let’s get off our bottoms and volunteer!”
Clearly, Clarkson feels passionate about the movement, pleading with those listening to "please, please volunteer."
Specifically, he was speaking about the campaign by the British tabloid paper The Sun, and their 'Jabs Army.'
Not only was he asking for volunteers, but he also explained why staffing these centres is such a challenge. Even a small centre such as the one he visited in Witney, Oxfordshire needs 50 volunteers to keep things going, so imagine the staffing levels required at larger centres such as Epsom Racecourse.
Clarkson is encouraging everyone to do their part.
Encouraging everyone to do their bit for England, Clarkson said, “To be involved in solving the biggest crisis we’ve seen since 1939 is so important. So wake up one morning and say, ‘Yeah, I’m going to do that. I’m going to volunteer’.
Senior partner at the Practice, Dr. Stephen Smith explains the need for more marshals: "The marshals [we have] have been incredible. The end point is that injection of hope we put into people's arms, it starts with a volunteer making sure the patient goes to the right place, and getting them through the building.
"We genuinely couldn't do it without them."
