Conference centres to be used as mass vaccination centres

News that a successful vaccine will soon be available has provided a much-needed boost to the UK as it endures a second national lockdown.

Planning is now underway to administer the vaccine, which will be arranged at mass vaccination centres across the country with the aim being to innoculate 5,000 people each day.

It has been reported that the NHS is planning to use conference and exhibition centres, town halls and stadiums as vaccination centres, with temperature checking and space for recovery time factored into the plans.

It is another example of how the events industry is stepping up to support the national effort in the fight against Covid-19.
