A vaccination clinic was set up in Granby Hall, just off Bethnal Green Road in Tower Hamlets, to support as many people as possible to access the Covid-19 vaccine.
More than 60 people who were eligible were given their vaccine in the community setting, which has strong links with our Somali community. Both male and female vaccinators were on-site in order to meet any cultural needs of residents, and Bengali and Somali interpreters were available throughout the day.
The site is the second vaccination clinic we have set up in a familiar community setting, following a successful clinic in the East London Mosque. We hope that initiatives like this will encourage even more people to come forward for their Covid-19 vaccine when invited.
