The centre will start by vaccinating people within the priority groups set by Public Health England.

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.

A representative said: “We are delighted to announce that a COVID vaccination centre will start administering vaccines in Marlow Globe Park week commencing 11th January.

“The exact address is Lunar house, Fieldhouse lane, Globe Business Park, Marlow SL7 1LW. We expect NHS England to make the site available for appointments from this Friday 8th January.

“We would like to thank Softcat management for agreeing to host the site in a dedicated wing of their ground floor offices, and for their availability during the Christmas period to make this happen at such short notice.

 “We would also like to thank the Marlow town council for their support, as well as the many local community organisations and businesses that offered their site as a possible location.

“This is one of many NHS vaccination sites that are opening in the area, starting with priority groups as defined by Public Health England.

“Vaccination appointments are managed nationally by the NHS using the National Booking System. Patients in priority groups will be contacted to set-up those appointments.

“When contacted, patients can choose which site to attend, based on proximity, convenience, availability and so on, the overarching goal being to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible.

“As a reminder, COVID vaccination is free of charge.

“Please do not contact the vaccination centre to set-up an appointment as we do not have the capability to set-up appointments locally.

“We will only have visibility on patient information after you have arranged an appointment via the NHS National Booking System.

“Vaccine delivery to local sites is also managed centrally by NHS England according to available stock, volume of patient bookings and vaccination capacity per site.

“The vaccine will be administered by trained Healthcare professionals (Doctors, pharmacists, nurses or other healthcare professionals) and vaccinators have to follow strict protocols and vaccine specific training to be in a position to deliver it safely.

“All COVID vaccination centres, including hospitals, GP surgeries and pharmacies, use the same system to record vaccinations in order to facilitate real time reporting of country-wide progress to the NHS and her Majesty’s Government.

“Once the vaccine has been administered, the patient records will be updated and the relevant GP surgeries notified automatically.”
