Breaking News ! A new coronavirus vaccination centre has been set up at Bristol County Ground's pavilion. The sports ground in Ashley Down, which is home to Gloucestershire County Cricket, has offered its premises to a Bristol GP surgery. Staff at Gloucester Road Medical Centre in Horfield started vaccinations there today (January 14), and expect to jab hundreds of patients within the course of the day. It is not the first time staff have utilised the space at the cricket ground - more than 2,000 of their patients received flu vaccinations there in September and October. 'Proud to help' The cricket club's chief executive Will Brown said: "At one of the most testing times we have all faced, Gloucestershire Cricket has been proud to partner with Gloucester Road Medical Centre to offer our facilities for vaccinations to those in our local community. "Following on from last Autumn’s flu jabs, and at a time where the vast majority of our staff are working remotely, it is heartening to see our home and facilities being used to help combat COVID-19. "Members of Gloucestershire’s own staff have volunteered to help assist in the vaccination process on site, and we will continue to do everything we can to help in the weeks and months to come.

. The stadium's vaccination centre has a much larger capacity and will administer thousands of jabs per day once it is fully operational. By comparison, hundreds of the vaccinations will be deployed into arms at the County Ground today, inside the Jessop Room on the ground floor of Bristol Pavilion. People cannot just turn up and expect to be vaccinated, however. Only people who have received an invite via the NHS, who have secured an appointment, will be able to attend. The club did not state how long the vaccination centre will be operating for.
