St. Helens RFC to host mass vaccinations

Totally Wicked Stadium in St. Helens to host Covid-19 mass vaccinations

The Totally Wicked Stadium, home of St Helens rugby league club, is to become Merseyside’s first centre for Covid-19 mass vaccinations.

The St. Helens stadium is one of 10 sites announced.  Saints’ ground, Blackburn Cathedral, Norwich Food Court and a park-and-ride outside York are among the new locations across the country where large-scale vaccination will take place.  NHS England said they will join the seven existing mass vaccination sites across the country, alongside a thousand GP-led surgeries and more than 250 hospitals already providing jabs.

Led by St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the Totally Wicked Stadium will become a hub for the jabs, using the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

The site will increase options for people in the region alongside primary care and local pharmacy outlets.  People should not to attend the stadium unless they receive an invitation.

Prof Kevin Hardy, the centre’s medical director, said described the move as “an exciting step” in the vaccine role-out.

He told the Local Democracy Reporting Service: “When the St Helens centre is fully operational, we will be vaccinating thousands of people each week.”
