New Vaccination Centre in Central Bedfordshire

A new vaccination centre is opening at Biggleswade Hospital Vaccination Centre, Potton Road, Biggleswade, SG18 0EL with bookings through the National Booking System from Monday, 4 April 2022.

As the national COVID-19 vaccination programme continues, the current facility offered from Priory House will close on 30 March. No appointments are being accepted after that date and walk-ins will cease at 17.30.

In addition to the many community pharmacies that offer the vaccine through the National Booking System, people can still book in to Watling House in Dunstable.

The new centre will also offer the Spring Booster which launched last week to:

  • adults aged 75 years and over
  • residents in care homes for older adults
  • individuals aged 12 years and over who have a weakened immune system

Everyone who is eligible will be offered a top up between three and six months over the Spring and early Summer.

Geraint Davies, Senior Responsible Officer for NHS Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group, said “I am pleased that we are able to offer another opportunity to people in Central Bedfordshire to get vaccinated. This is especially important now that we are offering the Spring Booster which is already off to a flying start since the booking system opened.

“I would also like to thank the teams who have worked so hard at Priory House serving the local population and I know they will continue to deliver a fantastic service from Biggleswade Hospital”
