Vaccination Host

The Port of Poole has become one of the latest locations to host a GP-led site to vaccinate Dorset’s most vulnerable residents against Covid-19.

Dave Laut, safety and security manager at the Port of Poole, said “Last year the Port helped to facilitate a drive-thru flu vaccination service which saw some 4,000 local people successfully vaccinated in time for flu season. We are incredibly proud that off the back of this success our facilities have once again been selected to play such a vital role in helping the NHS deliver vaccinations to our local community.”

“We have plenty of space in our newly renovated North Lounge at the Ferry Terminal and we have worked closely with the Poole Central Primary Care Network to put measures into place to ensure patients feel safe when they visit. We are in this together and Poole Harbour Commissioners are only too happy to do their bit.”

Dr David Broadley, a GP Partner at Rosemary Medical Centre and Clinical Director of the Poole Central Primary Care Network, said: “We will be offering the vaccination here at Poole Port in line with the national guidance and I would encourage everyone invited to take up the offer and get themselves protected. I thank all our residents for their patience, we will contact you when it is your turn, in line with the government’s priority cohorts.”

Please do not contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, they will contact you.
