About this event

Examples of the van use:

-Door to door vaccinations of housebound patients with the patient having the choice of a home visit or stepping onto the van.

- Pop-up clinics - the vans take away a lot of the time-consuming pop up site estate requirements.

- Safe vaccination at care homes, supported housing units, hostels and day centres.

- Supplementing estates capacity at GP and Community buildings where space is limited.

The units come fully equipped with furniture, storage and hand washing facilities.

The vans have a clear NHS corporate branding and come with a dedicated driver who can drive the van to multiple locations throughout the day.
