Blues show further support for the local community

The Club are working with Burlington Road surgery for their flu vaccinations this year to allow for an environment that is suitable for maintaining social distancing.

Three dates are in the diary for the flu vaccinations to be administered at Portman Road in the FanZone marquee.

The first was on Saturday, 3 October with a further October and November date in place. The surgery are liaising with their patients to pre-book their appointments.

Sharon Meers, practice manager at Burlington Road surgery, said: “There’s an amazing team at Portman Road. Our first session was wonderful and really smooth.  Both staff and patients who attended on the day gave us some fantastic feedback.”

The Club offered its facilities to the NHS at the beginning of the pandemic, before adding a thank you NHS tribute on the back of our first-team shirts this season.

Rosie Richardson, director of sales at the Club, added: “We’re delighted to be offering our services at the stadium to the NHS again. We had a great first session with Burlington Road last week and look forward to continuing this.”

A reminder to any Burlington Road patients attending a clinic at Portman Road are kindly requested to arrive in a timely manner and use the Constantine Road entrance, where a member of the surgery will greet you. If possible, please wear a short-sleeved top to help with the vaccinations. Please do remember to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing at all times.
