New vaccination centres to open to get BLMK boosted.
Two new vaccination centres will open in Milton Keynes and Luton on Monday to give residents the opportunity to get boosted in a bid to combat the Omicron variant.
As the effort to vaccinate our local population increases, the opening of new vaccination centres will ensure that residents have as many opportunities as possible to get their vaccination by increasing the number of available appointments in our area.
A brand new vaccination centre will open at Stadium MK, the home of Milton Keynes Dons Football Club. This centre will open on Monday 20 December, for walk-in appointments and will be available to book from Wednesday on the national booking service.
In a bid to bolster the number of vaccine opportunities, Farley Hill Community Centre in Luton will also re-open on Monday, providing accessible appointments locally.
Felicity Cox, Chief Executive Designate, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System, said:
“We are working with all of our great partners across BLMK to protect our local population and respond to the new threat from the Omicron variant. The opening of two new vaccination centres will allow us to increase the number of appointments available to our population each day, making it even easier for residents to get their jab at a time and place most convenient for them.
“I would like to encourage anyone who has not yet had their first, second or booster vaccine, to come forward to get vaccinated.”
