COVID-19 Vaccine Programme Update March 2021
Large-scale vaccination service to move from Epsom Downs Racecourse to Sandown Park.
From 17th May, the large vaccination service at Epsom Downs Racecourse – which people book via the National Booking system – will be transferring to Sandown Park Racecourse. As the country moves out of lockdown restrictions and plans to phase the return of horse racing events at Epsom Downs emerge, there is a need to relocate the vaccination centre from Epsom Downs to Sandown Park.

Vaccination appointments for those eligible will continue at Epsom Racecourse until 15th May. From 17th May all appointments will take place at Sandown Park. Once invited people should continue to book their appointment for the vaccination centre though the National Booking system. The move to Sandown Park is expected to be made without disruption and are grateful to the Jockey Club for their commitment to continue supporting the vaccination programme in Surrey. Local people booking appointments now may receive their first dose at Epsom Racecourse and second dose at Sandown Park. Details on appointment bookings can be found in these FAQS.

The site at Epsom also accommodates a Local Vaccination Service which is managed by local GPs. This service will also re-locate within the same time frame and it is expected to remain within the local Epsom area.

I should of course point out that Walton Pharmacy is actually now our nearest location where vaccines are being administered. I am advised by Councillor Turner that this has been progressing very well with The Blue Ball and Fox and Hounds car parking being available for the people coming for their jab. I will publish further details concerning where the GP's Local Vaccination Service will relocate when I have them.
