Covid-19 vaccination bus returns to Mansfield today

A mobile Covid-19 vaccination bus is to return to Mansfield today (Thursday) as part of efforts to make sure as many people as possible have access to the jab.

The bus will be stopping off in the parking area outside of Ladybrook Post Office, on Ladybrook Lane, from 1-4pm, after visiting Oak Tree Tesco in the town on Tuesday.

Health chiefs say the bus helps to get the vaccination rolled out in areas where take up has been lower and anyone who lives or works in the Ladybrook area and is eligible for a vaccination is urged to go along.

The service has been brought to Mansfield via a partnership between the NHS, Mansfield District Council and voluntary and community organisations.

Anyone currently eligible for vaccination – including those aged 42 or over, clinically vulnerable, carers or a frontline health and social care worker – can book in at any vaccination site across the city or county.
