Lincolnshire NHS leading the way with first large vaccination centre

The Covid vaccination programme in Lincolnshire continues to successfully roll out, meaning the protection of the county’s residents through vaccination is successfully continuing.

Specifically, Lincolnshire has been:

– amongst the first in the country to start vaccinating on 8th December through our first hospital hub at Lincoln County Hospital
– amongst the first to start vaccinating through our GP-led primary care network model, with fifteen centres in operation
– amongst the first in the country to be offering the new AstraZeneca vaccination, from our latest hospital hub at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston

Lincolnshire was amongst the first in the country to open a large vaccination centre at the Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston on 18th January 2021. The site will initially be the first and only one of its kind across the entire (East and West) Midlands area, meaning the NHS can offer many more local people their appointment sooner.

The large vaccination sites, will initially be vaccinating people in the key priority groups, starting with local residents over 80 who live within 45 minutes of the site. These people will be contacted and offered the centre as a choice for their vaccination appointment and local people are asked not to contact the NHS.

Lincolnshire Hospital Hubs:

– Lincoln County Hospital
– Pilgrim Hospital, Boston

Local vaccination centres:

– Louth Community Hospital
– Meres Leisure Centre, Grantham
– Waddington Surgery, South Lincoln
– St Marys Medical Practice, Stamford

– Franklin Hall, Spilsby
– Sidings Medical Practice, Boston
– Rustons Sports and Social Club, Lincoln
– Portland Medical Practice, Lincoln
– The Storehouse, Skegness
– Lincolnshire Showground, Lincoln
– Springfields, Spalding
– John Coupland Hospital, Gainsborough
– Marisco Medical Practice, Mablethorpe

Appointments for the vaccine centre will commence in due course, please remember that you do not need to do anything. You will be contacted by your GP when it is your turn to be vaccinated.
