Two vaccination sites in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are set to move after delivering more than half a million life-saving vaccinations to the public.
Mansfield Vaccination Centre and the Forest Recreation Ground Vaccination centre are set to close in the coming weeks and move to more permanent venues to continue administering vaccinations to the public going forward.
The Mansfield Vaccination Centre will close its doors on Thursday 12 May at 6.40pm and move to Ashfield Health Village from Friday 13 May.
The Forest Recreation ground is expected to close its doors at the start of June and move to its new permanent base at The Courtaulds Building in Haydn Road, Nottingham. More details about the Forest site closure will be shared in due course.
Adam Hayward, Deputy Director of Operations for the Nottinghamshire Vaccination Programme, said: “Although we are moving the two sites to different locations, we are still committed to providing a fixed location in the city and county for people to have a vaccination alongside our extensive range of community pharmacy locations and vaccinations delivered by GPs.
“We are excited to be moving and we welcome this next stage of vaccination services in the city and county.
“This change will enable us to move towards a more sustainable model of working which will help us to continue delivering an outstanding service to our local population.
“We will continue to offer the same range of vaccines at the new sites including first, second, booster and 5–15-year-old vaccinations through booked or walk in appointments.
“The two locations were always a temporary measure in response to the pandemic and were never considered a long-term solution.
“In recent weeks, our teams have been working hard behind the scenes to find and utilise more long-term spaces so we can continue to provide vaccines to the public going forward from fixed locations.
“Our fantastic team of staff will continue to work at the sites and we welcome anyone who is eligible for a vaccine, or those who have not yet taken up the offer, to come forward for a life-saving jab.”
The new sites will continue to offer vaccinations and the public can book an appointment through 119, the NHS website or by walking in during certain times. You can find walk in times on the NHS website.
The new locations can be found at:
Ashfield Health Village, Ashfield Community Hospital, 27 Portland St, Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottingham NG17 7AE – from Friday 13 May, 2022.
The Courtaulds Building, 292 Haydn Road, Nottingham, NG5 1EB – date to be shared in due course.
