Bookings surge at London stadium vaccination centres
Londoners received tens of thousands of Covid jabs in just a few hours on Saturday as football grounds in the capital were transformed into mass vaccination centres.
Huge jab clinics have been set up at West Ham’s London Stadium, Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Valley, home of Charlton Athletic, and Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park.
Smaller events are taking place in community venues in a drive to vaccinate as many Londoners as possible on what has been dubbed a “super Saturday”.
Young people in the capital had been urged to book vaccination slots as Covid-19 cases are soaring among children and young adults. The number of people infected with the virus is increasing rapidly in England, doubling every 11 days.
