The Vaccination hubs are an efficient way to reach large numbers of people, and have been established in convenient locations in different parts of the Island and provide comfortable and safe facilities.

Please remember to wear a face covering when attending your vaccination appointment. There will be social distancing measures in place and the hubs will be regularly cleaned, All staff will also be wearing appropriate PPE.

Please ensure that you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your vaccination appointment. If you arrive early please stay in your vehicle until it is time for your appointment. This will help to keep queues to a minimum and prevent large crowds forming outside the Hub locations.

Eastern Hubs
Chester Street, Douglas

The hub is located beneath the main car park and will provide more parking, better accessibility by bus, taxi drop-off plus car parking for the public.

Those who have had their first dose at Newlands should attend the Chester Street Hub for the second dose appointment.

To get to the vaccination hub:

  • Take a bus or walk through the town centre following the clearly marked signs
  • Park at Chester Street car park, with 2-hour disc parking available on levels 2 to 6
  • Be dropped off by family, taxi or patient transport at the drop-off zone
  • Use the additional disabled parking on Market Street

Circa’s Shopmobility scheme can help anyone who requires a wheelchair, mobility scooter or walking aids for their vaccination appointment – and you don’t need to be registered disabled to take advantage of their support. They are open Monday to Friday, call 613713 to make a reservation.

Please remember to bring your consent form to your appointment.

Below is a video of Sam Kneen, vaccinator coordinator, giving a walkthrough of the Chester Street hub and the steps you will take.

The Airport hub will be halting appointments after 4 July. Individuals whose appointments were previously booked at the Airport on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 July, and Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July are instead being asked to attend Chester Street hub. All appointments will be at the exact same time as originally booked for these dates, just instead located at the Chester Street hub.

This new vaccination hub opened on 28 January.

The Hub has been created alongside the check-in area on the ground floor of the terminal building in a convenient and accessible location with free parking nearby. 

Please remember to bring your consent form to your appointment.

All those attending the airport vaccination centre will be required to use the car parks as it will not be possible to drop off in front of the terminal building.  If you need wheelchair assistance at the airport, we would ask that your carer attends the vaccination centre, somebody will then help with getting you from your vehicle to the airport. 

Transport to and From the Airport

Vaccination Centre Airport (PDF): Buses depart Douglas Lord Street up to every 15 minutes, and the airport stop is conveniently located right in front of the vaccination hub.
