Arsenal COVID

Arsenal, Watford and Crystal Palace hosting mass vaccination centres this weekend to protect local communities in fight against COVID-19

The stadiums of ArsenalWatford and Crystal Palace are the latest in the Premier League to be used as vaccination centres in the fight against COVID-19.

Emirates Stadium is hosting National Health Service staff and volunteers to administer residents with their first jab over a four-day period, starting on Friday through to Monday 28 June between 08:00 and 20:00 BST.

Local residents without a vaccination can either book an appointment or turn up on the day for their jab. To encourage as many people as possible, Arsenal are also offering free stadium tours for visitors during that period.

"The vaccine is helping to bring us out of the pandemic," Jonathan O’Sullivan, acting director of public health in Islington, told the club’s official website. "But we need more people in Islington and London to get vaccinated.

"We hope the pop-up at this iconic landmark in the borough will provide some extra incentive."

Watford host COVID-19 clinic 

On Sunday, Vicarage Road allowed people to receive their first vaccination from 10:00 to 21:00 BST. Anyone aged 18 and above was able to book an appointment or simply turn up on the day.

Selhurst Park opens up

The Arthur Wait Stand at Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park is also being used for walk-in and bookable vaccinations. People aged 18 or over can get their first or second Pfizer jabs at the venue.

Clubs helping NHS

Throughout the pandemic, Premier League clubs have been providing their facilities and resources to help the NHS and those in need in their communities hit by the virus. 

Last weekend, Brentford Community Stadium, London Stadium, Stamford Bridge and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium were offering local people vaccinations or COVID-19 tests, while Anfield, Selhurst Park, Villa Park, Old Trafford, the Amex Stadium, Elland Road and Manchester City's Etihad Campus are among the other venues which have supported the training and/or administering of vaccinations to date.
