Covid vaccinations: Thanet GP team moves from Saga to Broadstairs Retail Park plus clinics for Ramsgate and Cliftonville

The vaccination team are now working from the former PC World unit

Thanet’s GP-led covid vaccination clinic opens at its new site in Broadstaors Retail Park tomorrow (January 15) following its move from the Saga site in Ramsgate.

The hub has been operating from Saga since March after it moved from St Peter’s Church Hall.

The clinic is now at the Westwood unit between Currys/PC World and Wickes and people can walk in for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and booster jabs tomorrow from 8am to 5pm.

A NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group spokesperson said: “The Thanet vaccination centre team will be open in its new home from tomorrow (Saturday, 15 January) – the former PC World building – and will be providing the same high-quality service it has done since it originally opened at the Saga site last year.’’

The team, led by Dr Ash Peshen from the Margate/Mocketts GP group, was visited in December by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of the drive to get people to have their booster jabs. He described it as one of the best centres he had seen.

The new site will be open for walk-ins on:

Saturday 15 January: 8am – 5pm
Tuesday 18 January: 8am -5pm
Thursday 20 January: 8am – 5pm
Saturday 22 January: 8am – 5pm

  1. Actually, the Kent Community Healthcare Foundation Trust began vaccinating at the SAGA site from 22nd February, a month before the GO led OCN vaccination team moved there.

  2. I feel slightly confused, who they are still vaccinating. We have been told that they have no plans, to give use a forth dose. Surely everyone has had well enough time to have all their top ups by now. The only people left now are the people in tin foil hats and those thinking Bill Gates is in every vaccine centre putting the tracking chips in the syringes.

    • The people left now are those who know that the ‘vaccine’ is ‘on trial’ until 2023 & don’t want to suffer side effects.

      • Those left are those who in ICU tell their friends and families ‘I wish I’d had the jab’.

      • Does this mean there will be a big queue for vaccines on the first of January 2023? When it is no longer on trial.

        • I don’t think you understand the nature of a trial & the amount of adverse effects that need to be collated. I for one have no desire to be a guinea pig.

          • Luckily as far as I can there is no plans to force anyone to have the vaccine. But I feel. there is going to be more and more implications of not having them. Such as firms like Next and Ikea not paying staff off from work due to Covid who have chosen not to be vaccinated. I am sure many other companies will follow. Also if someone is willing to not play tennis in Australia, and lose a fortune, due to not having the jabs. I suppose you do not need them. Maybe Andrew Wakefield, Piers Corbyn and David Icke and co. have got it right. They seem to have their heads screwed on.

    • Simple solution: insist on needles with very fine holes through them. Then the chips won’t be able to get through.

    • It’s time to bring in vaccine passports.
      There’s no reason at all why dangerous nutters should be allowed to inflict disease and death on the rest of us, and that’s what refusing to get vaccinated amounts to.
      These nutters might have the freedom to choose not to be vaccinated, but I too have the freedom to choose not to be harmed.

      • Andrew: you are certainly showing your true colours by resorting to crude and crass propaganda language like that. How puerile. That no longer works with those engaging their brains. If you are one of those treble jabbed people, why on earth would you be afraid of catching any plague variant? Oh yes, because the experimental gene therapy is not a true vaccine, and you can still catch and pass on these apparent variants. The questioning crowd number many top medical and scientific experts in their fields globally, as well as medical, care home and funeral director staff seeing at first hand the deaths and series adverse reactions from these jabs (not through their trails until 2023 with no hard data on how these different jabs interact with each other). The skeptics are those who know who to look after their immune systems, health and know how to research extensively from many medical and scientific sources. The nutters are those who don’t question and and don’t understand that science is all about questioning. It is never fixed. Vax passports are only for those who favour the Nazi ‘show your papers fascist state’. Developing legal cases on these are fascinating.

        • “The nutters are those who don’t question and and don’t understand that science is all about questioning. It is never fixed”
          For once, I totally agree with you. Would that others understood this, too.
          Ok. Instead of vaccine passports, how about requiring antivaxxers to walk round ringing a bell?

  3. Acquired Immunodeficiency syndrome appears to be of great concern amongst the treble jabbed say professionals who have analysed the official UK Health Security Agency (UKSHA) data. There’s 5 months of data available now. Natural immune systems seem to rule supreme as ever, although they make big pharma and their shareholders zero profits.

    • Natural immune system didn’t stop 150,000 (in the UK) from dying, and countless others suffering long covid.
      Vaccines, on the other hand, have had a measurable effect.

  4. Well said Democrat! It’s also worth noting that 45% of current Covid-positive hospital patients were admitted for other medical reasons and subsequently tested positive over the following seven days. these patients are not primarily being treated for the virus but many are suffering because of health care services being cancelled or disrupted due to the NHS focus on the vaccine roll out.

    • NHS heathcare includes the vaccination programme. But the disruption in hospitals is being caused by a criminal underfunding by the government, and the need to provide care for tens of thousands of people suffering the effects of covid.

    • Can you enlighten me of any real exemption, that most people can use? If a multimillionaire tennis player is struggling to find one. Best of luck with that one.

      • Many people can’t take vaccines due to a medical condition. All they need to do is declare it. It’s all in the etymology, decline not refuse. Good luck.

        • Almost everyone can take the vaccine. The number of people who have legitimate reasons for not being vaccinated is vanishingly small.
          If you chose not to be vaccinated when there’s no reason not to be, then you must be prepared to face the consequences. Your decision will impact on other people: your family, friends, colleagues.

        • So does that mean. Next and Ikea etc. Can decline to pay people away from work for Covid reasons. If they have not vaccinated. Instead of refusing to pay them?

        • I think most busy GPs will refuse, or sorry decline to give out exemption letters. Unless there is any real reason. Ask one of the many people losing their jobs in the care sector or NHS. Who do not want the vaccine.

    • What sort of exemption would that be? “J’m a bloody-minded person who just likes to reject science for the hell of it”? sort of reason?

      • Marva..You’ve obviously never seen the official statistics for adverse effects and deaths recorded by the MHRA, EMA and CDC from the jabs, which is thought to be about 1 to 10 per cent of the real figures. Or talked to doctors and nurses who have seen the vax damage and deaths at first hand (funeral directors also speaking out). Skeptics are the ones who have researched in depth, as MIT University Boston revealed in their study on this. My body my choice for the thinking people.

        • “Marva..You’ve obviously never seen the official statistics for adverse effects and deaths” …
          I have, and pretty reassuring they are.
          The number of lives saved by the vaccines is several orders of magnitude greater than the number of lives lost.
          “thought to be about 1 to 10 per cent of the real figures. ” – who thought? Scientists, based on observed data, or nutters making up the story as they go along. Please tell us.

        • I’m a”thinking person” and I’ve chosen to be vaccinated. I am not a sceptic about scientific discoveries, on the whole.
