London stadiums were transformed into huge Covid-Jab clinics on “Super Saturday”
Thousands of Covid-19 vaccinations are given after stadiums and football fields in London are converted into mass vaccination centers.
Huge shock clinics have been set up at the Olympic Stadium, Stamford Bridge, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Charlton Athletic FC, Selhurst Park and the Crystal Palace Athletics Center.
Smaller events are also held in local community facilities to vaccinate as many Londoners as possible.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “delighted” to visit Chelsea’s stadium on Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC had to give 6,000 Pfizer vaccines on Saturday, with vaccination being offered to all adults over 18 who have not yet received a first dose, as well as those waiting for a second Pfizer dose.
Khan said, âChelsea FC, West Ham at the London Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Charlton Athletic FC are hosting large pop-up clinics and there are a large number of events in local community centers so that as many people as possible can have easy access to the life-saving Covid-Jabs.
âYou don’t have to be registered with your family doctor to be vaccinated.
âIt is great news that Londoners have received more than eight million doses of the life-saving Covid-19 vaccine and that all adults over the age of 18 can now get the vaccine.
âWe are seeing the big difference the vaccine is making in our fight against the virus so I urge all adult Londoners to book their appointments or go to a running center as soon as possible and make sure you get your second dose. “
The âsuper pop-upsâ are supposed to attract thousands of young Londoners on âsuper Saturdayâ who are now entitled to their first Covid jab.
At the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, east London, a huge queue formed as people lined up to get their jab.
Vaccination Minister Nadhim Zahawi tweeted: âThis is an incredible achievement by the entire London team. It’s also happening across town at Spurs, Arsenal, Charlton, and West Ham. Come on London, let’s vaccinate! “
