Lichfield Cathedral becomes vaccination centre

Back in the summer of 2020, the Dean of Lichfield, The Very Reverend Adrian Dorber, offered Lichfield Cathedral as a space that could be used for vaccinations.

A spokesperson from the Lichfield Primary Care Network, comprising of The Langton Medical Group and The Westgate Practice, said at the time:

“The Lichfield Primary Care Network, comprising of The Langton Medical Group and The Westgate Practice, is extremely pleased to accept the generous offer of the Dean, to use Lichfield Cathedral for patient vaccinations against COVID-19.

It seems very apt to use the Cathedral because it is such a central focus of community life in Lichfield and we are delighted to be offering this service to our shared community.”

The first vaccine clinic at the Cathedral started on 15 January 2020 and a queue of people waited to receive their injections.

Patients are contacted directly by their GP practice and offered appointments – people should not call their GP to ask for a vaccination or just turn up at the clinic.

It is believed that the Oxford/AstraZeneca is the vaccine being used at this location.
