Flu and Covid-19 vaccinations available for residents at Community Lounges

As winter approaches, Community Lounges are opening their doors in Stoke-on-Trent to offer a safe and warm space for local residents.

Community Lounges offer advice and support for individuals and families on mental health and wellbeing, carers support, financial support, housing, cost of living support, employment and digital support and general lifestyle advice.

As well as advice and information, people will be able to get their flu and Covid-19 vaccination at Community Lounges in Meir and Bentilee.

Dr Lorna Clarson, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care Board said: “With viruses like Covid-19 circulating this winter, it is essential that people get vaccinated as soon as possible. It’s brilliant that we are able to offer vaccinations at Community Lounges that provide vital support to local people. Vaccinators will be out at the Community Lounges so that it’s easy for people, including vulnerable members of the community, to get access to the vaccines they need.”

The Community Lounges are open on the following dates:

• The Lounge, Bentilee Neighbourhood Centre, Thursday 14th December, 12:30 – 2:30pm

• Meir Matters, The Old Library, Sandon Road, Meir, ST3 7DJ, Monday 18thDecember 12:30 – 2:30pm

Gill O’Hare, Implementation Lead for Communities Together added: “Our Community Lounges provide a place for residents to gain local advice and support for both them and their families. We encourage residents from the local area to pop in for a chat, to speak to one of our advisors, to find out how we can help.”
