Massive vaccination event at Twickenham stadium on Bank Holiday Monday.

On Bank Holiday Monday, Twickenham Rugby Stadium will be turned into the biggest vaccination venue so far for residents of North West London, with up to 15,000 vaccinations ready to be administered on the day.

This vaccination event, Let’s Tackle Covid, will give eligible residents the opportunity to have their first dose of the vaccination without delay. This is in response to an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in the area.

The event will take place from 10am to 8pm on Monday 31 May at Twickenham Stadium.

You can walk in without an appointment but if you want to guarantee a slot and reduce your waiting time then you can book online.

Pippa Nightingale, Chief Nurse, NW London said: “We know we are finally due some lovely weather on Monday but if you are eligible and you haven’t had your vaccine yet, we encourage you to take some time out of your day and come and see us.  I want to thank Hounslow Council and the RFU for their brilliant support. Let’s tackle covid!”

Kelly O’Neill, Director of Public Health, Hounslow Council said: “Getting the vaccine is the single most important step we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities against COVID-19 and we encourage all our local community to have their vaccine as soon as they are eligible. Let’s tackle covid!”

Twickenham Stadium Venue Director Mark Lynch said: “We are proud to have supported the NHS for over a year during the pandemic, first with a test centre in Twickenham Stadium car park and now to set up this mass vaccination facility in record time. It’s taken less than a week to turn around and I’d like to thank all 600 stadium and NHS employees involved for their hard work to make this happen. Like rugby clubs across the country, we feel it’s important for us to us to do our bit to support our local communities.”

The event is being organised by local NHS in partnership with Hounslow Council and supported by England RFU.
