Having initially been designated as a potential site for a vaccine centre back in December of last year, Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton is finally operational.

The facility fills a gap in local provision and comes just a week after local MP Fleur Anderson made a direct pleat to Vaccine Minister Nadim Zahawi to accelerate the opening.

Wandsworth Council's cabinet member for adult social care and health, Cllr Clare Salier, said, “The vaccination rollout continues and it is great news that nearly 80,000 Wandsworth residents have now received the vaccine. The opening of Queen Mary’s Hospital as a vaccination site is another step in ensuring that we get more of our residents vaccinated.

“The vaccination is the best defence against coronavirus, and it is never too late to take up the offer of a vaccine. I would urge anyone eligible who has yet to do so to come forward and book a jab to protect yourself and others.”

It was also announced this week that the car park at the hospital will be hosting mobile operating theatres as part of the effort to reduce the backlog of surgeries in the local NHS.

Those aged 55 or over who have not yet received their vaccination are urged to contact the NHS and book an appointment.

It is important that only those that have received their NHS vaccination invite attend the centre.

Vaccines can be booked by calling 119 for free or by visiting this link.
