Luton residents urged to get vaccinated

Date: 25/03/2021 | Category: Uncategorised

A number of temporary walk-in vaccination centres are being opened in Luton this weekend to help more people access their Covid-19 vaccination in Luton.

Residents over 50 are being encouraged to visit one of the temporary vaccination centres, which have been set up across the town this weekend. They do not need to pre-book an appointment and can just ‘walk in’.

This comes as recent data shows that Luton is falling behind other areas in terms of the number of eligible residents booking to receive their Covid-19 vaccination and local health bosses and Luton Council have joined forces to urge residents to take action and get vaccinated.

GPs have raised concerns that with infections starting to rise again in the town, this could delay plans to ease restrictions and bring back some normality this summer. The vaccination programme is considered to be the best route out of the pandemic and local leaders are working to reassure residents that the vaccine is halal, kosher, vegan and safe.

Temporary sites are being opened in:

 

Luton Central Mosque,

2-12 Westbourne Road LU4 8JD                                                       12 noon – 7pm

Saturday, Sunday

 

Luton Town Hall (main entrance)

Saturday, Sunday

 

Mobile Bus, Sainsbury’s carpark,

34 Dunstable Road LU1 1DY                                                            10am – 5pm

Residents will also be able to walk in to existing sites without an appointment:

Friday, Saturday, Sunday

 

Inspire Sports Village,

Butterfield Green Road, Off Hitchin Road, LU2 8DD                       12 noon – 7pm

There is no need to book, residents who are eligible (over 50 or considered to be ‘at risk’ or clinically vulnerable) can just walk in to a centre.

You will not need any official paperwork, but we do ask residents to provide proof/evidence of their postcode on arrival.
