Lincolnshire's Covid-19 vaccination hub locations released




A list of the Covid-19 vaccination hubs across the Greater Lincolnshire region has been published by the NHS.

The list covers both hospitals and local satellite vaccination centres including doctors’ surgeries, sports centres and village halls.

South Holland District Council Leader Gary Porter along with Coun Martin Hill, who leads Lincolnshire County Council, have been calling for greater transparency from the national NHS over the vaccination programme.

The Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine will arrive at hundreds of GPs across the country in order to make it easier to protect care home residents and other vulnerable people against the virus.

Vaccines are being given to the most vulnerable first, as set out in a list of nine high-priority groups, covering around 30 million people.

People aged over 80 in hospital, frontline health staff and care home workers have been the first to get the Pfizer jab at designated hospitals hubs.

Those in the vaccination queue will be contacted by the NHS and invited for a jab.

The vaccine has been trialled at hospitals before being sent to community-based local vaccination services in the UK this week.

However, local leaders have expressed concerns over a lack of transparency in the vaccine rollout process.

Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, Martin Hill, condemned “national edicts which are apparently preventing local managers from sharing details of their local delivery plans with us”.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes to provide 13 million of the UK’s most vulnerable people with the vaccine by mid-February.

According to vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi, just 10 per cent of that figure has been managed since rollout began on December 8 nationwide.

It has been estimated that around 10,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been delivered in Lincolnshire so far, with over 7,000 Oxford doses arriving in the county this week.
