New vaccination centre opens in Doncaster
A new NHS COVID-19 vaccination centre has opened its doors in Doncaster for people in the eligible groups across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to get their vaccination.
The new centre is based at Woodfield Park, off Tickhill Road, Balby, and neighbours with Tickhill Road Hospital. It is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
Anyone in an eligible group, currently 25 years and over can make an appointment by visiting the national COVID-19 vaccination booking website or by calling 119. The centre is not currently accepting walk ins.
Rachel Millard, Deputy Director of Nursing, who is helping to head up the vaccination programme for the health trust, said: ”This new Centre is another location where people can get their COVID-19 vaccination by simply booking an appointment online or calling 119. I would urge everyone aged 25 plus who has not booked their jab yet to go online today and make their appointment. Enjoy summer knowing you are protected against this awful virus which is still circulating in our local communities.
“We know those people who have not been vaccinated are still becoming ill if they get the virus and many are suffering the after effects of the virus for many weeks and months even though the initial iillness was mild. This new vaccination centre is easy to access with great links from the A1 and M18 and we’ve plenty of free parking outside,” she added.
