Throughout Nottinghamshire vaccination hubs have opened both in hospitals and local centres in a bid to meet the UK vaccination goal.

By mid-February the UK Government wants everyone in the top four priority groups to have had their first dose of the vaccine.

These groups include; residents in a care home for older adults and their carers, all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers, all those 75 years of age and over, and all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.

The four big hospitals in Nottinghamshire have been set up as hospital hubs and include the Queen’s Medical Centre, King’s Mill Hospital, City Hospital, and Retford Hospital.

In addition to this within some towns around the county other centres are also being used to distribute the vaccine.

These include; Ashfield Health Village in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Richard Herrod Centre in Carlton, Gamston Community Hall, Cripps Medical Centre in Nottingham, Larwood Surgery in Worksop, and Kings Meadow in Nottingham.
