City Council leader Cllr David Mellen said:

‘We are doing everything we can to support the NHS in its rollout of the vaccination programme, and especially in attempting to reach those communities where uptake has been lower.

‘We are therefore really happy to be working with them and local voluntary and community organisations to launch a mobile vaccination bus service. It will travel to different parts of the city over the next few weeks, with a team of NHS staff on board to administer the vaccine in a safe way.

‘This is an innovative way to make it as simple a decision as possible for people who are perhaps hesitant about it – taking the jab to them removes a potential obstacle.

‘The bus will stop off at a number of locations across the city, including Chase Neighbourhood Centre in St Ann’s, Strelley Social Club, The Pelican Pub in Bilborough, Sultania Mosque in Sneinton, Bulwell Market, Forest Road West and Bestwood Park Church.’

For further information, and to book a vaccination appointment on the bus, please visit: https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/nottinghamc19vbus.php

It’s worth reiterating that any Muslims in our communities who have a Covid-19 vaccination booked during the holy month of Ramadan – first or second dose – should not delay having it and go to their appointment. The British Islamic Medical Association has confirmed that having the vaccine does not invalidate the fast. The vaccine does not contain pork or other animal products.

Covid-19 vaccination bus

A mobile vaccination bus is offering the Covid-19 vaccine to people in Nottingham to help drive uptake amongst eligible groups. The bus will travel around areas of the city initially before moving to areas in the county. For further information, and to book a vaccination appointment on the bus, click here.

How will you be contacted for vaccination?

There are a number of different ways you could be contacted in order to receive a vaccination:

1. Local hospital services – you might be contacted either to have the vaccine as an inpatient or at an outpatient appointment.

2. Local vaccination services – practices in your area are working together to contact and offer the vaccine to as many people as possible. This may be at a different surgery than you usually go to, or at a venue we have set up specially to deliver vaccines.

3. Through your care home – GPs and their teams are also arranging to vaccinate care home residents directly, in their homes.

4A letter from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service to book online or by phone. Booking through this service will give you the option of having the vaccine at a large-scale Vaccination Centre, or potentially a community pharmacy depending on whether these are available locally. The public will only receive a letter from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service if they live within a 45 minute drive from one of these sites. Our nearest site is the Wickes site in Mansfield. It is also important to note that should a person receive a national letter, they can wait for their local letter if that is more convenient.
