NHS England and NHS Improvement undertake an assessment of all potential sites which may be considered under the vaccination programme. This will include size, location, availability, suitability and will include an assessment around accessibility aligned to the Equality Act 2010. Where there are running costs to be incurred, the site will also be subject to a value for money assessment. Sites will be secured under formal lease or licence.
