NHS vaccination bus to visit Queen Anne House
The NHS will be running a popup vaccination hub at Queen Anne House in Cambridge on Monday 18th October between 11am – 5pm.
It’s a bus that will be parked in front of the main entrance on Gonville place in central Cambridge, directly opposite Parkers Piece. Parking is limited so easiest access is on foot.
Anyone over the age of 16 years old can stop by to get a Covid Vaccine there and then, no appointment necessary. However, this is only for first and second doses (first dose must have been taken at least 8 weeks prior to visiting the bus). You can not attend for your booster dose.
Please bring and wear a face covering when accessing the bus.
We will be encouraging our residents to get vaccinated, and to access information provided by the NHS team on site to help bust some myths and get clarification on some of the misinformation circulating around Covid and the vaccine.
