The MCC has worked closely with local healthcare representatives to convert a space at the world-famous ground, creating the largest vaccine centre in the borough.

The two teams have worked together on the complexities of setting up such a facility including the logistics of staffing, space, equipment, and provisions (especially for the frail and vulnerable) and all within a Covid-secure environment and with health and safety as the priority.   

Guy Lavender, Chief Executive & Secretary of MCC, said: “We are fortunate to be able to have the appropriate facilities at Lord’s and we are extremely glad to be able to support the NHS and our community in this way.

“During the pandemic we have been able to provide amenities to local hospitals and we are eager to continue to assist wherever we can with the rollout of the vaccination programme.”

Lord’s is due to host its next ODI match on 10 July when Pakistan tour England.

The United Kingdom has been particularly hard hit in terms of Covid-19 cases and fatalities.

As of Thursday, 14 January, the UK had recorded 3.26 million positive cases and, sadly, in excess of 86 000 deaths.
