New COVID-19 vaccination centre opens in Harlow

From today (Tuesday 26 January), Essex and Hertfordshire residents aged 75 and over will be able to book their coronavirus jab at Harlow’s Leisurezone.

We now have seven sites – five GP-led sites, one at Princess Alexandra Hospital and now Harlow Leisurezone.

The vaccination centre at Harlow Leisurezone is being run by Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT). HCT has set the centre up with the support of our fellow CCG colleagues, Harlow Council, the Essex Local Resilience Forum and local volunteers.

HCT’s Director of Nursing and Quality, Sarah Browne, said: “Everyone at HCT and in our partner organisations has been working very hard in the lead up to opening the centre today. We can now welcome local people in the prioritised age groups with confirmed appointments to receive their vaccine, along with health and social care workers from across our area. This represents a big step forward in helping to beat the COVID-19 pandemic. My sincere thanks go to our project team and our school-age immunisation team who are working around the clock to deliver this programme.”

Dr Rob Gerlis sends a big thank you to all our colleagues at the CCG, volunteers and partners who have been working so hard, and continue to work hard, to set up these sites and ensure they run smoothly.
