Boots in Gloucester to offer Covid-19 vaccinations

Gloucester’s Boots will be one of three sites in England that will offer Coronavirus vaccinations.

Boots in Gloucester will be one of only three of the company’s sites offering Covid-19 vaccinations, from early January 2021.

The pharmacist and health and beauty retailer has said that it will be offering vaccination services at sites in England which initially include Gloucester’s branch on Eastgate Street, as well as Halifax and Huddersfield.

A Boots UK spokesperson said: ‘At Boots, we are proud of our role at the heart of UK healthcare and we can confirm that, together with the local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), Boots will initially open three Covid-19 vaccination sites, based in Halifax, Huddersfield and Gloucester. They will begin vaccinating patients in early January.

‘Boots has extensive knowledge and experience of vaccination programmes (having completed over a million flu vaccinations this year, for example) and we have developed a model for Covid-19 vaccination that is aligned with our exceptional safety, clinical and operational standards.

‘We stand ready to do much more and our national network of pharmacy expertise is prepped to support the NHS and the government to accelerate the rollout of the vaccine.’
