A mass Covid-19 vaccination programme begins at Doddington Hospital next week. 

Fenland Group Surgery (FGP) – which includes those at Manea and Wimblington -have partnered with other local surgeries for the programme.  

Vaccinations will be carried out from 8am to 8pm daily including Saturdays and Sundays.  

Patients have been advised not to call their local surgery for details - “you will be contacted by phone with an appointment” said a spokesman.  

FGP announced the programme today with an appeal to businesses or others willing to donate warm drinks and snacks to staff and volunteers.
