Local MP Richard Thomson has encouraged constituents in Bridge of Don, Dyce and Bucksburn to continue to get vaccinated when invited to do so, highlighting a change in location for the City’s main vaccination centre as of 19 June.
The Aberdeen City Vaccination Centre will move from its current location when it has been based since September 2021 to Unit 19 in the Bon Accord Centre.
Commenting, Richard Thomson MP said:
“The Aberdeen City Vaccination Centre will close in its current location on Sunday 4 June, reopening in Bon Accord Aberdeen on Monday 19 June. During the move, appointments for immunisations including Shingles & Pneumococcal, and the COVID-19 spring booster, will be made at the centres in Airyhall and Bridge of Don.
“My thanks go to the staff who have and who will continue to administer the vaccination service, ensuring that the population is as protected as we can be going forward.
Caroline Anderson, Vaccination Programme Manager for Aberdeen City, said:
“The Aberdeen City Vaccination Centre (ACVC) has been based at Norco House since September 2021. As the service changes focus to offering a range of immunisations as part of the Vaccination Transformation Programme, and a more targeted COVID-19 vaccination offering, our needs have changed.
“The new centre will also provide a base to promote health & wellbeing with the provision of a Health Information point and the ability to open the space for regular classes or events in conjunction with other health & social care services.”
“We have planned this move carefully, to try and minimise disruption, and I want to thank people in advance for their understanding and willingness to attend appointments at other venues. If they cannot come to these centres, then they will be able to book appointments at our new home from Monday 19 June onwards.”
All other vaccination centres in Grampian continue to operate as normal, in their established venues.
