Mirella Gilpin is one of the first to be vaccinated at the BAC.

From Monday (8 March) Battersea Arts Centre opened as another Covid-19 vaccination venue.

The site is in the Council Chamber in the old Battersea Town Hall, and includes visual and digital installations that welcome the public.

Wandsworth Council's cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Health, Cllr Clare Salier, said: “We're really pleased with progress that we're making, and the new vaccination site is another step in ensuring that we get more of our residents vaccinated.

“It is important that only those that have received their NHS vaccination invite attend the centre. It is also vital that those with appointments do not arrive too early for their booked slot to keep queues to a minimum.

“It is never too late to take up the offer of a vaccine and I would urge anyone eligible who has yet to do so to come forward and book a jab to protect yourself and others.”

Those aged 65 or over who have not yet received their vaccination are urged to contact the NHS and book an appointment. The booking service can be accessed at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.

Those who cannot go online can call 119 free of charge. Get more information here
