Football fans to get another walk-in vaccination opportunity at this Saturday’s Oxford United match

Fans aged over 16 attending the Oxford United home game against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday have the chance to get a Covid vaccination before the match.

Oxford Health has been working closely with the Kassam Stadium management since early this year to run the successful mass vaccination centre.

And, for the second time this season, fans who have yet to have a first or second vaccination (Pfizer second jabs only after 8 weeks) will have the chance to get theirs before kick-off.

Anita Sherwood, Oxford Health’s Head of Testing, Immunisations and Risk Assessments, said: “The Kassam is the home of Oxford Health’s first mass vaccination centre we opened and we were keen to give fans at this home match the chance to get their first or second vaccine.”

The fan vaccinations will be carried out between 12 noon and 3pm. The pop-up centre will be situated near the stadium entrance and will be clearly signed. The facility will be available only to people attending the game who are aged 16 and over.

The main vaccination centre at the Kassam is closed on Saturday but is open again on Sunday for walk ins. See the grab a jab website for more information on opening hours.
