On Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September we are unable to run our Mass Vaccination Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground. Due to a pre-existing event there will be no vaccination appointments or walk-ins available.
We will be contacting all patients who had appointments booked for these three days at the Lincolnshire Showground to offer them the opportunity to rearrange their appointment for another day at the Lincolnshire Showground or to attend one of our other vaccination sites. Alternatively, if you have a pre-booked appointment and wish to change it yourself, you can do this online.
To ensure sufficient capacity we will be running a ‘pop-up’ vaccination site offering walk-in vaccinations at the University of Lincoln Sports Centre on Sunday 5th September, from 10am – 4pm and this will be open to everyone aged 16 and over.
In addition, we will also be running vaccination sessions for 12-15 year old clinically extremely vulnerable patients on two of the days when we would have usually been at the Lincolnshire Showground, and these are by invitation only.
“We appreciate the temporary closure of our Mass Vaccination Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground will cause disruption to a number of patients who were due to attend for their vaccination, but our team will contact everyone affected to ensure that alternative appointments are offered, either for a new date at the Showground or at one of our other vaccination sites,” explains Rebecca Neno, Director of Covid and Influenza Vaccination Programmes at NHS Lincolnshire CCG.
The Mass Vaccination Centre will reopen at the Lincolnshire Showground from Monday 6th September.
