"Over the past few weeks, we have been working very closely with the local Primary Care Network and Bedfordshire's NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, transforming the clubhouse into our community vaccination hub, with the expectation that this will provide the means of reducing the impact of the virus, and helping to bring a much-needed return to some form of normality, in the coming months for all of us."
