Covid-19 Vaccination Programme and the Arkwright Hall

When details of the Covid-19 vaccination programme first emerged there was reference to village halls being possible sites.

The Arkwright Hall Trustees immediately contacted the NHS and offered the Hall and the person at the NHS responsible for identifying sites in Derbyshire visited our Hall in early  December.

Although he was impressed with the Hall and appreciated our offer there were strict criteria that had to be followed, in particular separate in and out access on the flat for wheelchairs etc to allow a circuit of the stages of the process.

Sites have to be available for people in a 30 mile radius with up to 40 patients per hour with most coming by vehicle and parking was an issue especially at school arrival and departure times.

Unfortunately the NHS had to decline our offer.
