According to a report in The Daily Mail, Spurs have offered the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to the National Health Service to use as part of the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination scheme.
The report reveals that the government plans to turbo-charge efforts to get millions of people vaccinated so that cycles of lockdown in England can be eased.
Seven mass coronavirus vaccination centres will open next week in order to speed up the process, with the hubs based in Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Stevenage, Bristol, Surrey and Newham in central London.
Even, sports venues, conference centres and a science park are set to be used for the purpose.
During the first wave of the virus, last summer the North London club’s stadium was re-purposed house the North Middlesex Hospital Women’s Outpatient Services and was used to operate drive-through testing and swabbing for NHS staff.
The venue was also being used to produce as many as 1,000 protective face shields per week for NHS staff on the front-line of the pandemic.
