Police were called to an anti-vax demonstration on Friday (December 10) at Guildford’s main Covid vaccination centre at Artington.

An uncorroborated report from a known source, said: “It sounded pretty bad. Children were present and protesters were said to have shouted, ‘If your parents have this vaccine they won’t be spending Christmas with you.’

“The staff in the portable buildings locked the doors and no one was allowed in or out. This is said to have worried some of the children whose parents were getting vaccinated and it prevented those arriving for vaccinations from entering.

“The protesters were also reported to have banged on windows and tried to push leaflets through.”

A police spokesperson confirmed that there had been an incident and said: “We received a call to a group of protesters at the Artington Vaccination Centre on Old Portsmouth Road at 14.42 on Friday, December 10.

“Police attended and found 15 protesters at the location. The group began dispersing at around 15.15. There were no arrests made.”

The Covid vaccination centre at Artington comprises Portakabins and a gazebo in the car park of Guildway business park. It moved from G Live to Artington, via George Abbot school, in September.

Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group has been asked to comment.

    Despicable behaviour by these protestors.

    Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but for those involved to seek to impose their views on others in this manner, is not acceptable and smacks of downright thuggery.

    If it is peaceful then what is the problem? Many people in society believe that covid is not a true pandemic and more like the flu that has been rebranded by the media.

    The rhetoric behind this universal vaccine programme is incessant, alarmist and dividing. This has been the most uniform and concerted psychological weapon ever devised to control human behaviour so people deserve their right to the freedom to speak out against it.

    Good on them.

      According to The Dragon’s source, it was clearly was not a peaceful protest. Banging on windows and frightening children and no doubt some of the adults present, is neither peaceful nor lawful protest.
