Covid vaccine centre map: Which areas now have a mass vaccination centre?

Vaccine: Boycott slams government over second dose delay

Covid vaccines centres opened up this month in the UK, taking some of the administrative burden off hospitals. They started delivering vaccines in December, and while they will still do so in the future, the new centres are purpose-built for the rollout. The centres should also allow health workers to quickly vaccinate most people in the UK, preferably by late this year.

Which areas have a mass vaccination centre?

Mass vaccination centres across the UK will boost the UK’s capacity to administer the jab.

They will operate in conjunction with hundreds of GP surgeries and hospitals to boost the daily number of people vaccinated, currently at 200,000 per day.

The new centres will open from 8am to 8pm and help vulnerable people across the UK receive the vital jab.

The Government has opened mass vaccine centres in the following locations:

  • Bristol: Ashton Gate
  • Surrey: Epsom racecourse
  • London: ExCel centre:
  • Newcastle: Centre for Life
  • Manchester: Manchester Tennis and Football Centre
  • Stevenage: Robertson House
  • Birmingham: Millennium point
  • The centres can allegedly vaccinate up to four people per minute.

And together, they bring the number of locations providing vaccinations in the UK to 1,200.

The Government is still making its way through the most vulnerable people in the UK, starting with the elderly and care workers.

But Matt Hancock has promised aid acceleration to success by autumn.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show on Sunday, he said every adult in the UK would have a jab by late this year as the Government started “accelerating the rollout”.

While they are being administered “according to need” still, he said they would “absolutely” offer it to everyone.

He told Andrew Marr: “Every adult will be offered a vaccine by the autumn, absolutely. I totally agree it’s very, very important.

“Of course you’ve got to do it according to need, because someone in a care home is many, many times more likely to die if they catch coronavirus than someone like me in my 40s.

“But absolutely we’re going to offer the vaccine to everybody.”

“We’ve got over 350 million doses on order, they’re not all here yet, and we’re rolling them out as fast as they get delivered.

“But we’re going to have enough to offer everyone over the age of 18 one by the autumn.”

The minister added the Government may need to introduce an annual “dual” vaccination programme.

Such a programme would vaccinate people annually for both the flu and Covid, which would see people annually vaccinated for both Covid and the flu.
