After lobbying the Health Secretary and Vaccines Minister several times over the past few months, I am delighted that Scunthorpe has been able to open a large vaccination centre at The Baths Hall on Doncaster Road. The facility will open on 15th March and you can apply to volunteer by emailing the North Lincolnshire Alliance Volunteer Hub at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is hoped that with a strong team, the hub will be able to start administering 500 jabs per day from the off, going up to 1,000 jabs as things progress. Given we are already leading the nation in the speed of our vaccination rollout, this mass centre will give us the boost we need to cross the finish line in the coming months.
People aged between 56 and 59 are currently being invited to book their appointment, with those aged 50-55 due to be invited in the coming weeks. Those invited can use the national booking service to reserve a slot at a NHS vaccination centre or one of the pharmacy-led services across the country.
