Patients from High Wycombe’s Cherrymead surgery and other practices in the Bucks Primary Care Network will get their coronavirus vaccine at Adams Park in the following weeks.

The Stadium is to be used because the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine needs to be stored in fridges that cannot be distributed to practices.

The surgery will hope to start inviting over the 80s to the ground this week and believe it will take around two weeks to vaccinate all the patients.

Following the roll-out of the Pfizer/BioNtECH vaccine across the UK, the vaccination programme has become the largest-scale programme in British history.

Places up and down the country have offered their venues to help distribute the vaccine to patients.

Cherrymead surgery said: “Coronavirus Vaccination Clinics for Cherrymead Surgery's registered patients will be held at Adams Park Football Stadium.

“This is because the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine has to be carefully stored at -80C in special fridges and cannot be distributed to practices.

“Fridges, vaccines and equipment are expected to be delivered this week.

“We hope to begin to invite patients over eighty this week for their first vaccinations.

“The Vaccination Centres will be used by patients from other practices in the Arc Bucks Primary Care Network."

“Cherrymead Surgery will be allocated a proportion of the appointments at each shared clinic.

“This means that it will take approximately two weeks to vaccinate our registered patients over 80.

“All appointments have to be pre-booked.

“Instructions for this will be given with invitations.
