More Shropshire residents will now be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 with the opening of the county’s new dedicated Vaccination Centre in Ludlow .

The new centre at Ludlow Racecourse opens on Tuesday 2 February 2021 and will be capable of vaccinating thousands of people every week as national supplies of the vaccine allow.

Vaccinations will be provided from the centre by appointment only, and people who are eligible to receive a vaccination will be contacted by the NHS with details of how to book.

The Vaccination Centre will be staffed by clinicians, vaccinators, administrative staff, volunteers and marshals, who will help make a visit to the centre run as smoothly and safely as possible.

The NHS will write to eligible people offering them the opportunity to book an appointment at the new Vaccination Centre via the NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Booking Service. Letters will invite those eligible who live in reasonable travelling distance of the centre, and who haven’t already been vaccinated by their local GP-led community vaccination service or hospital hub.

The letter that people will receive also explains that if you can’t travel to a vaccination centre, or there is another reason you can’t book an appointment at the nearest vaccination centre, you can choose to wait until your local GP services contact you if they haven’t already. If this is your preferred option – you don’t need to do anything now – wait for your GP service to make contact.

If you receive a letter and already have an appointment booked to have your vaccination at a local GP service, please ignore the letter. There is nothing you need to do and please attend your appointment.

Nobody needs to contact the NHS, as people will be invited when it is their turn, and people cannot get vaccinated by just turning up.
