Here's where you can get the Covid-19 vaccine in Lincolnshire

A list of the Covid-19 vaccination hubs across the Greater Lincolnshire Region has been published by the NHS.

The list covers both hospitals and local satellite vaccination centres including doctors’ surgeries, sports centres and village halls.

The Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine will arrive at hundreds of GPs across the country in order to make it easier to protect care home residents and other vulnerable people against the virus.

Here is the list in full:

The Covid-19 vaccine roll out is underway

Hospitals: United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby and Scunthorpe General Hospital.Community hubs: Franklin Hall, Spilsby, Portland Medical Practice, Lincoln, Rustons Sports and Social Club, Lincoln, The Sidings Medical Practice, Boston, Cliff Villages Medical Practice, Navenby, Louth Hospital, St Mary’s Medical Centre, Stamford, The Table Tennis Club, Grantham Meres, Beacon Medical Practice, Cleethorpes, Open Door, Grimsby, Pilgrim Primary Care Centre, Immingham, Scartho Medical Centre, Grimsby, Cedar Medical Practice, Scunthorpe, Riverside Surgery, Brigg, South Axholme Practice, Epworth and The Central Surgery, Barton.

The vaccine has been trialled at hospitals before being sent to community-based local vaccination services in the UK.

However, local leaders have expressed concerns over a lack of transparency in the vaccine rollout process.

Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, Martin Hill, condemned “national edicts which are apparently preventing local managers from sharing details of their local delivery plans with us.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes to provide 13 million of the UK’s most vulnerable people with the vaccine by mid-February.

According to vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi, just ten per cent of that figure has been managed since rollout began on December 8 nationwide.

It has been estimated that around 10,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been delivered in Lincolnshire so far, with more than 7,000 Oxford doses arriving in the county this week.
