Coronavirus: Vaccination Clinic Information

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Important - Vaccine Information

Before attending for your vaccination, you are asked to read the government provided patient information in the following two links:

Logistics

The large number of vaccinations (up to 2,400 per day) being given poses a huge logistical challenge within the medical centre, parking at the medical centre and traffic in the surrounding roads.

On clinic days the team will do their best to keep things moving, but request that if possible you please avoid West Allington and West Road, as queueing traffic is expected.

 

Parking

Parking in the field behind the medical centre will only be possible if the weather conditions are favourable, please do not rely on it being available.

Parking at the medical centre is extremely limited and will be STRICTLY allocated to BLUE BADGE holders and those with poor mobility.

Iif possible, we ask that you get dropped off and picked up later, or park offsite.

 

 

Arrival

Those attending should please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes prior to their appointment time.

The vaccinating teams and marshals will do everything they can to minimise wait times, but queues do sometimes build up outside; even if a dry day is forecast, be prepared and wear suitable clothing and footwear to protect against cold and wet weather.

We now have a proven system that avoids the build-up of queues, but it only takes one or two small glitches for queues to quickly start building. For this reason, please follow the instructions given by the marshals, many of whom are giving their time freely so we can all be protected.

With no queues, for those dropping off and picking up patients, the estimated time from drop-off to pick-up will be around 20-35 minutes (this varies depending on the vaccine given).
