JOIN THE CALL FOR IMPROVED ACCESSIBILITY TO VACCINE HUBS
With the creation of Scotland’s vaccine ‘super-centres’, the majority of COVID-19 vaccination appointments are taking place at centralised hubs as opposed to in local communities.
James Kelly has raised concerns that the transferring of appointments from local hubs such as Fernhill Community Centre, and Whitehill Community Centre to the new venues at the Alistair McCoist Sports Complex in East Kilbride and Motherwell’s Ravenscraig Sports Centre has made the vaccine inaccessible for many throughout the constituency..
People who drive are able to access the super-centres with ease but many are being left to spend considerable sums on taxis or use public transport. For many, two buses are required to access either of the two new vaccination centres that are serving Lanarkshire.
