Councillor Majid Khan, one of the organisers, said it was important for people to attend especially in the wake of the more transmissible Indian variant.

“Following the overwhelming success of the two pop vaccination clinics held in March, when we vaccinated over 800 residents, we decided to continue with this community based approach.

“With lockdown restrictions being eased by central government and the potential threat of the Indian variant of Covid-19, it is even more important that our Doncaster vaccination programme is as wide reaching as possible.

The decisions we make as elected representatives are always based on the safety and welfare of the residents of Doncaster.

“It’s for that reason we have worked so hard with Anthony Fitzgerald, Dr Rupert Suckling, the CCG, NHS, Doncaster Council public health team and the mosque to ensure that our vaccination programme can reach as many people as possible, ensuring the wellbeing of our elderly and vulnerable residents.

“Another lockdown would be damaging to physical and mental health of residents, would be detrimental to our children’s educations and would deepen the financial damage suffered by so many of our hard working residents and businesses. The only way to ensure that this doesn’t happen is to get vaccinated and protect each other.”
