“There is nothing to worry about. I promise you’ll be fine.”
He was helping alongside airline crew, football club stewards, the fire service and the Armed Forces at Milton Keynes mass vaccine centre, Bucks.
John said: “It’s an honour to be working alongside the Jabs Army volunteers, NHS staff and Armed Forces helping to give out this life-saving drug.”
EasyJet steward Oliver Lewis told John it was vital the public got the vaccine “especially if we want to travel abroad again”.
Vaccinator June Mason, 58, said she had come out of retirement after 40 years as a nurse.
She told John: “I chose to do this because I want to get the world back to normal.

“I want to be able to hug my friends and family again.
“This vaccine is how we will be able to do that.
“I wouldn’t have come back if I didn’t think it was safe.”
John thanked her for her dedication and added: “We all have to band together as a team to fight this and we have to do everything together from volunteers to NHS and other clinical staff.”
Caroline Shepherd, associate director of Covid vaccinations in Herts, Beds and West Essex, told him: “When I get this vaccine, it is absolutely not going to change any of the DNA in my body as some fear-mongers suggest.

“It gives your body a practice run in a safe way so when the real thing happens you can fight it.”
John’s parents have already been given the life-saving drug as they are 88 and 86.
And the actor says he will definitely return to the centre to volunteer
