The Royal Greenwich vaccination bus providing easier access to COVID-19 jabs

The bus will make it easier for vulnerable people to get the COVID-19 jab
COVID 19 Vaccination Bus in Royal Greenwich

The mobile vaccination unit was launched on Saturday 13 February to make it easier for people who cannot leave their home to get the COVID-19 jab. 

The bus will help Royal Greenwich NHS services reach people and areas where the take-up of the vaccine is lower. It will also make it easier to vaccinate the people in the highest priority lists, especially those who are house-bound or shielding. 

The bus will be travelling across Greenwich for the months to come, while more pop-up hubs will be introduced across south east London.

We want to really work with our community leaders, and do deep engagement work down to postcode, down to streets ... where the uptake has not been high.
