In Dacorum, all GP surgeries have joined together to form a vaccination centre at Maxted Road, in Hemel Hempstead.

Residents will be contacted by text message or a phone call from their GP to book an appointment for their vaccine.

A pharmacy in Apsley has been added to the national booking system, residents can book to have their vaccine here, if they are in the priority groups and have received a letter inviting them to have their jab.

Alternatively, residents in Dacorum can also choose to receive their vaccine at the 'super' mass vaccination centre at Robertson House in Stevenage.
