Liverpool have announced that Anfield is set to join the growing number of COVID-19 vaccination sites throughout the city.

“We’re delighted to have the support of Liverpool Football Club for our latest vaccination location. Sport plays such an important role in the life of the city, so it’s really fitting that the club is helping us to protect our population and hopefully look forward to a point in the future when we can see some normality begin to return.Dr. Fiona Lemmens on normalcy in Liverpool
Those invited to receive their vaccination at the stadium will need to be registered with a GP practice.
