Manx Care preparing to 'urgently relocate' Covid vaccine hub

Healthcare provider has concerns over the suitability of the site

Preparations are underway to urgently relocate the Island's Covid vaccination hub.

Manx Care says there are concerns around the suitability of the Chester Street site to deliver a clinical service.

The healthcare provider previously cited difficulties heating the building and a lack of staff facilities among the issues with the site.

The board says the new base will accommodate the vaccine team, storage and facilitate specialist clinics, and once it's open there will be an increase focus on delivering pop-up clinics using community facilities.
