Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) will open as one of the first COVID-19 vaccination hubs in the UK from as early as Tuesday 8 December 2020.
The hub will focus on vaccinating local residents who are aged 80 or over and care home workers first, as well as NHS staff who have been assessed as being at highest risk of serious illness from COVID-19.
The hospital will contact those that are eligible for a vaccination to arrange an appointment. Please do not contact the hospital to try and arrange an appointment until they have contacted you.
MKUH Chief Executive, Professor Joe Harrison, said: “We are delighted to be one of the first places in the UK to receive and administer the vaccine. It represents a momentous step in the UK’s response to the coronavirus.
“It is good news but this is just the start of a long vaccination programme and I would urge the public to keep following government guidance and the principles of Hands, Face, Space to continue to protect themselves and the community against the spread of the virus.”
