Anyone attending an appointment at the vaccine centre will be greeted by volunteers who will marshal car parks and register them when they arrive. The centre has been organised to allow for social distancing.

They will receive a health check and a pre-vaccination assessment before the vaccine, and then be observed for 15 minutes afterwards.

Those who requires extra support from a carer should have them attend the appointment but is asked this is kept to a maximum of 1 other person to maintain social distancing. Wheelchairs will be available for anyone who requires them, and disabled parking is available on site.
