If you have further questions or are looking for advice about Covid-19 please visit the NHS Website.

The Arena is currently part of a growing number of primary care sites across the region where GPs and their teams are already working around the clock vaccinating some of the region’s most vulnerable residents.

In the first instance people aged 75 plus within a 45 minute drive of the Arena will receive a letter from the national NHS booking service inviting them to either book a vaccination at the venue - if you already have an appointment at your local GP vaccination hub you can disregard the letter. Equally if it is more convenient to have the vaccination at your local primary care centre then individuals can also chose not to book an appointment at the Arena.

The Arena will be open 7 days a week & will be run by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals on behalf of the NHS national vaccination programme.
