People traveling to Wembley for England game urged to visit nearby COVID jab clinic | UK News

Fans traveling to the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy have been urged to get the COVID vaccine if they have not yet received a first or second dose.

Anyone who visits the Wembley Vaccination Center, located minutes from the famous arch, will be able to receive a vaccine to help boost their protection against the virus.

While some who will attend the game will have had to show proof of vaccination, many will also have been able to enter after showing proof of a negative lateral flow test or natural immunity after having the virus.

These are among the people the top NHS doctor targeted when he urged fans to be a ‘team player’ by getting their pre-match shots.

Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for NHS England, said: “The NHS vaccination program, the largest in health services history, runs throughout the weekend with hundreds of sites offering walk-in service, so if you’re cheering on England or have other plans, it couldn’t be easier to take a jab.

“The vaccine is England’s best defense, protecting yourself, your family and loved ones against COVID, so be a team player and get your two shots in what is a game of two jabs.”

The Wembley vaccination site is at the Olympic Office Center, 8 Fulton Rd, Wembley, London, HA9 0NU and will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. so that any adult can come on Sundays.
