The NHS are seeking additional temporary pop-up sites for the North Yorkshire and York COVID Vaccination Programme.

Ideally, they are looking for locations that could accommodate up to 50 people requiring vaccination.

Their data indicates that a large number of people within the usual working population have still not received either first or second vaccinations. They are therefore keen to provide pop-up locations close to larger working populations and to encourage employers to provide time-off to attend vaccinations during working hours.

Areas where there are a large number of businesses, or reasonably large footfall, would be perfect locations – including factories or industrial estates.

The vaccination team would need access to handwashing facilities and toilet facilities. The room would ideally accommodate 5-10 people with social distancing, again this would depend on the venue offered.

If you are in a position to host a pop-up vaccination site please get in touch, in the first place with: nyccg.covid19@nhs.net
