Life is delighted to be the venue for an NHS COVID-19 large vaccination centre. Opening on 11 January 2021, Life is believed to have been the first science centre in the world to be used for this purpose. 

To help with the largest vaccination programme in history, up to 1,000 people from across the North East of England and North Cumbria are being vaccinated every day at Life, seven days a week. The operation of the centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS. Sorry but Life will not respond to any queries relating to the NHS vaccination programme.

The NHS has issued the following information: Only people who are invited to have a vaccine can book an appointment. For more information go to this NHS website.

Patients coming to the vaccination centre should now use the Life Meetings and Events entrance on Central Parkway, located here. Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park. Limited spaces are available on site on a first come, first served basis – sorry but we are unable to reserve spaces. 

The New York Hall of Science created a set of graphics to explain the facts of COVID-19 and shared them with science centres around the world. Watch a short video that we created with the graphics.
