A new Covid-19 vaccine centre will officially launch at Watford Town Hall this Thursday, 11 February 2021, and hundreds of Watford residents are already booked in to receive their vaccine, supporting the town’s efforts to reduce infection rates, protect the NHS and save lives.
Whilst the Town Hall is a great location for a centre, Watford Borough Council has worked closely with the NHS, to adapt part of the building for its new role so that it easy to access, people can wait safely and the team administering the vaccine programme have everything they need to make it quick, easy and stress-free.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said; “I am delighted that the Town Hall can play such a vital role in protecting our community. It is such a landmark in Watford and so it seems fitting that it can add this role to its long history of serving our residents, perhaps the most important one it has ever played.
“We will join local GP surgeries, pharmacies and Watford General Hospital in getting this life-saving vaccine to those who need it most and I would urge everyone aged 70 and over to book an appointment. It is the best way we can protect ourselves, our friends and family and, hopefully, come out of this terrible pandemic together.
“I would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who is working so hard to make this vaccine programme a success, from the clinical staff to the volunteers, everyone involved should be proud of the difference they are making.”
The centre is in the extension to the Town Hall, chosen because it is on one level and has flexible space to accommodate the needs of the centre, which will have the capacity to deliver thousands of vaccines each week.
Vaccinations at the Town Hall are by appointment only and people should wait to be called before attending any vaccination centre.
