Networks (PCNs) at four local vaccination centres in North East Lincolnshire. Health
and social care workers are also being vaccinated, primarily from the hospital hub to
enable them to safely continue delivering vital care.
There are vaccination centres at four primary care centres which house a number of
GP practices. These are Open Door, Albion Street in Grimsby, Beacon Medical
Centre in Cleethorpes, The Roxton Practice in Immingham and Scartho Medical
Centre in Scartho.
These sites also host ‘roving’ vaccination teams which will vaccinate people within
care homes and those people that are housebound. Any home visits will be arranged
by the NHS prior to the appointment and people should not accept any door-to-door
offers of vaccination.
