Posted on Friday January 15, 2021
Our landmark venue opened its doors on Monday 11th January as the first NHS mass vaccination site in Birmingham. The centre is run by the NHS in Birmingham and Solihull as part of the regions Covid-19 vaccination programme and will vaccinate up to 2,500 people a day and play a vital role in protecting lives, and in supporting the recovery of our region.
Five days on we take a closer look at how the first week of having this life-changing vaccine has gone.
As part of its support for the vaccine centre, Birmingham City Council has gifted use of the multi-storey car park based on Jennens Road, to enable NHS patients attending their vaccination appointments to park free of charge. Millennium Point is also easily accessible on foot from New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill Stations is well served by local bus routes and is a 10-minute walk from the city centre.
