Our Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

Our Staff

A huge thank you to our dedicated staff who have worked tirelessly to deliver the vaccine programme alongside their increasingly busy workload.

They have done early starts and late finishes, worked their days off and at weekends and put in many hours of overtime to ensure that we could deliver the vaccine safely and as quickly as possible.

Our positive mantra throughout was “Let’s get this done!”

Our Volunteers

We made a shout out for help on social media, and you answered!

We had 55 volunteers come forward to offer their help and from these came our truly amazing team of 25 regular volunteers who attended nearly every clinic, whatever the weather or the day of the week!

We were also lucky to have the support of 6 dedicated and enthusiastic clinical volunteers who regularly attended our clinics to support our GPs and nurses.

Our Patients

Thank you to our patients, for your patience and understanding whilst we were rolling out the vaccine programme, for helping us to follow the guidance at the clinics to keep everyone safe, and for cheering along our volunteers and staff. We really appreciated the biscuits and sausage rolls!

We have loved hearing the feedback from your experiences at the clinics.

Our Community Centre

We couldn’t have delivered the programme so quickly and safely without the help and support of the Macclesfield Community Centre and the centre manager who was always there to help.

We used the hall to deliver each of our AstraZeneca Clinics, delivering up to 1440 vaccines per clinic from this site.
