All aboard the vaccine bus in Bulwell

A mobile vaccination bus is coming to Bulwell to offer the Covid-19 vaccine and help drive uptake amongst eligible groups.

Wednesday, 14th April 2021, 9:54 am

The local NHS has teamed up with Nottingham City Council, and local voluntary and community organisations to launch the service and the bus will travel to different parts of the city over the next few weeks to offer the vaccine to targeted groups of people in areas where vaccination uptake is lower.

A team of NHS staff will be on board the bus to administer the vaccine in a safe way.

The bus will stop off at a number of locations across the city and will be at Bulwell Market on the morning of Tuesday, April 20th with appointments available from 10am and a handful more available from noon.

Some appointments can be booked in advance on SwiftQueue, but people will also be able to turn up on the day to get the vaccine.

David Johns, Nottingham City Council’s interim director of public health, said: “We are doing everything we can to support the NHS in its rollout of the vaccination programme, and especially in attempting to reach those communities where uptake has been lower.

“We still know a number of people who are eligible haven't yet been vaccinated.

" To make it as simple a decision as possible for people who are perhaps hesitant about it, taking the jab to them removes a potential obstacle.”

The bus will travel around areas of the city initially before moving to areas in the county.
