Players support Turf Moor pop-up centre to give Covid the red card

A new pop-up vaccination clinic has opened at Turf Moor.

Open for three days from now (Thursday) the site is offering first and second doses of Pfizer and AstraZeneca to local people.

And some of the Clarets’ player were among the first to join the queue and get their vaccination.

Winger Dwight McNeil had his first jab, followed by a number of other first-team players and a group from Burnley’s Under-23 squad.

McNeil, 21, said: “People of my age can get it done now and I would encourage them to because that’s the way the world is moving now.

“I have spoken to friends and family members who have been doubly jabbed now and I thought it was the right thing for me to get it done.”

The temporary facilities at Turf Moor are aimed at bringing vaccines closer to people living in the Burnley area.

The pop-up clinic makes getting a jab easier and more convenient, with clinicians on hand to answer questions and address any concerns people might have.

The facility is open to anyone aged 18 and over for walk-ins with no appointment needed.

The Turf Moor site is open Thursday until 7pm; Friday 11am until 7pm and Saturday 11am until 7pm.

Burnley Football Club Doctor, Simon Morris – a driving force behind the project at Turf Moor – said: “I’m really proud of the players for waiting their turn until the vaccine has been widely available in the community.

“Now they feel the time is right to protect themselves, their loved ones and also help to promote the uptake in the people who are out there in the local area who haven’t had a vaccine or who are undecided.”
