It is open from 8.00am - 8.00pm seven days a week
You can book to have your COVID vaccine here when you have been contacted by the NHS or you can drop-in.
Attendance is by appointment or you can drop-in if in one of the eligible cohorts according to the Government's priority list here.

What will happen when I attend?

Arriving

For those with an appointment, we request that you do not come too early. Just come a minute or two before your appointment time. 

If you are opting for a Drop-in slot and are in one of the cohorts eligible for the COVID vaccine, join the queue outside the centre. Our Front of House staff will take your name and details.

  • Please bring you NHS number and evidence of which of the current cohorts you are in
  • We want everyone to be safe during their visit and not be in close contact with others so maintain a 2m space from others in the queue.
  • You cannot bring any family members into the centre with you unless you need a carer.
  • Others will be asked to wait outside.
  • We have a separate entrance and exit, and a one-way system to maintain distance

Checking in

When you arrive, you will be met by our front of house staff.

  • They will ensure that you are wearing a face covering and will provide you with a mask if you are not.
  • We will ask you to sanitise your hands in the foot-controlled dispenser by the entrance.
  • We will check your details and appointment information.
  • We will also take your temperature.

Vaccination

  • We will then take you to one of our vaccination pods.
  • The vaccinator will ask you some of the same questions you have been asked - just to be sure you are safe and well to have the vaccine
  • Talk with your vaccinator about which arm you would prefer to have the vaccination in.
  • If you are especially worried about having injections, tell your vaccinator so they can look after you carefully.
  • Our vaccinators are very gentle and skilled - you really won't feel much
  • The vaccinator will check that you feel ok.
  • You will be given a leaflet about the vaccination you have just had.
  • You are then free to go
