As the nation prepares for the roll-out of COVID19 vaccinations, The Bath & West Showground is delighted to be invited to become one of the main vaccination centres to service the Somerset area.

This is a triple win for the Royal Bath & West of England Society as it is privileged to be part of the largest peace-time project since the war years.

The national roll-out will commence in due course with a commitment from NHS England to provide COVID19 vaccinations through to the spring of 2021. There will be a process of booking for vaccinations once the centre at the Bath & West site is live and NOT an automatic walk in day scheme. The general public are advised to wait for more details to be released in due course.

Responding to the announcement, Rupert Cox, CEO of the Royal Bath & West of England Society said;

This is great news for Somerset. It is an honour to have been selected to host this major vaccination programme for the benefit of Somerset residents and we are working with Somerset NHS Foundation Trust to make sure the logistics run as smoothly as possible.

A successful nationwide vaccination campaign will also increase the chances of events being back up and running and provide a much-needed confidence boost to everyone within the event industry.
