News that a vaccine programme will be implemented before Christmas has prompted Lichfield Cathedral to renew its invitation to local GP practices to use the Cathedral as a vaccination centre.

The Very Reverend Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield, said: “The roll out of this new vaccine to immunise us against Covid-19 infection is the best news of the year.  We want to offer the Cathedral nave as a big space that can safely and securely house local vaccination programmes and enable speedy delivery to those most at risk”. 

Discussions are under way with local health providers to arrange facilities and appropriate dates and times.

The Dean continued: “We pray every day for our nation and community especially for the healing the sick and protecting the vulnerable.  It’s only right we offer the Cathedral as the practical means for those prayers to be answered”.
