Working in partnership during the vaccination programme in Bromley. During April and May we run a special series of vaccination clinics in collaboration with Bromley GP Alliance and local community centres. The clinics were targeted at local residents living in parts of the borough where uptake was lower, and who were in the most vulnerable cohorts and had not yet come forward for the vaccination. We would like to thank the Cotmandene Community and Resource Centre, Mottingham Community and Learning Shop, Penge Library and The Temple United Reformed Church (St Mary Cray) staff for their support and the local community for promoting these clinics.
