Wycombe Wanderers' Adams Park home will be used as a centre for vaccinations against Coronavirus over the coming weeks, with thousands of eligible local residents due to visit the stadium to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech jab.
A number of functions rooms at the venue on Hillbottom Road will be used for the preparation and delivery of the vaccine, which will be made available in the first instance to residents in care homes for older adults and their carers, frontline health and social care workers, the over-70s and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.
Wanderers' Chief Commercial Officer Neil Peters said: "It's a real honour for Wycombe Wanderers to be able to play a part in combatting this pandemic by providing use of our stadium for the delivery of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.
"Adams Park means so much to so many people because of the special achievements of the club over the past 30 years since it was built, and now it will be a place which will make a real life-changing impact for thousands of people who will hopefully be able to return to some kind of normality after being immunised against the disease."
The club would like to remind supporters that nobody should visit Adams Park during lockdown without an essential, pre-made appointment with a staff member, and that access to the vaccination suites is strictly prohibited for those who have not received an invitation to do so. Any breaches could severely jeopardise the delivery of these vaccinations and endanger the health and wellbeing of all involved.
