Covid 19 vaccine: the club offers the stadium – again – for the roll-out of the COVID-19 jab.
Again, we have become the first Premier League club to offer our stadium as a venue to roll out the Covid-19 vaccine. It will provide an open space for the NHS to administer injections.
Previously we allowed our 62,000-capacity stadium to be used as an outpatients unit for North Middlesex Hospital during the first lockdown last year. The dressing rooms, interview rooms and cafe etc., were used to treat pregnant women.
But we are not the only club to offer our services. Wycombe Wanderers of the Championship has also provided their function rooms at their Adams Park stadium as a venue for vaccinations to be carried out.
As you know, the UK government aims to vaccinate all citizens aged over 70, the most clinically vulnerable and frontline health and care workers by mid-February, which will require around 13 million vaccinations.
All Premier League clubs have collectively said they would be willing to offer their facilities to help roll out the service, but Spurs are the first to act. Clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea etc. are still waiting in the wings for whatever reason before going that step further.
