Staff at Doncaster’s Almond Tree Court have vaccinated an average of over 800 people a week since starting out in January last year and are urging those residents who are not up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations to book in to see them.

It's a combined effort in the building, which is based on Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s (RDaSH) Tickhill Road site, with front line staff vaccinating and an admin team meeting and greeting and recording details on patients’ NHS health records.

Charlotte Almond, from RDaSH, manages the centre and said: “I encourage everyone who still needs a COVID-19 vaccination to book online with us by visiting the www.nhs.uk website or ringing 119.
