The u3a Newsletter Express reminds us of the events they have taking place during March, and mentions that their Spring Learning Programme is coming soon.
Also, the u3a will be taking part in the National Day of Reflection on 23 March (one year on from the first pandemic restrictions), and would love to share thoughts, poetry or experiences of u3a members about the last year so do get in touch with them.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine
Your GP will either call you or send a letter inviting you to your vaccination appointment. Please do not call the GP or go to the vaccination site without an invitation.
There are a number of different ways you could be vaccinated:
- Local Vaccination Sites (run by Buckinghamshire GPs). GPs are also delivering the vaccine directly to care homes for their residents and staff.
- Pharmacy Sites
- National mass vaccination sites
- Hospital sites for health and social care staff
All vaccination sites have parking on site or nearby. The public car parks will have a charge.
Local vaccination sites
In Buckinghamshire, all GP Led sites will be operating by 25 January and all residents over the age of 80 will be offered a vaccination appointment locally through their GP Practice by the end of January. All GPs are involved in the rollout of the vaccination programme, through eight GP led sites across the county.
Vaccinations are not delivered at GP surgeries but at the vaccination site they are linked to – the Aylesbury Covid-19 Vaccination Centre, at the Indoor Bowls Centre, Stoke Mandeville Stadium, is linked to the following GP surgeries:
- Berryfields Medical Centre.
- Edlesborough Surgery.
- Haddenham Medical Centre.
- Mandeville Surgery.
- Meadowcroft Surgery.
- Oakfield Surgery.
- Poplar Grove Practice.
- Westongrove PCN.
