The vacant former Argos store in the Kingdom Centre in Glenrothes and the Savoy Community Centre in Methil are the latest of the mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics to open in the region. These complete the roll out of the four mass vaccination sites in Fife, including both the former M&S store on Kirkcaldy High Street and Fife College’s Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline.
The Savoy Centre will serve a dual purpose over the coming months, with the venue large enough to safely host both the new mass vaccination clinic and the existing asymptomatic testing site for COVID-19. In addition, a number of smaller existing clinics will continue to operate in the more remote parts of Fife.
The new mass vaccination clinics have up to 20-30 stations in each, and are designed to maximise the throughput of people attending for their jab.
Vaccinations at all clinics will continue to be by appointment only, with all adults who have not yet been vaccinated in Fife, offered jabs in the coming months. These appointments are being sent out in a phased basis using the national scheduling system, starting with those aged 40-49 years old.
The latest information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Fife is available here.
