As you know the Kincardine & Mearns Vaccination Clinic has been located at the Stonehaven Leisure Centre since January of this year. With the support of Live Life Aberdeenshire this clinic has been running like clockwork in a great location, however due to work which is currently taking place on the sports hall roof we have had to take the decision to move the clinic to the Stonehaven Town Hall in the short term.

Initially it was thought that the work would not significantly impact on the operation of the clinic, however it has become clear that it does and that it is untenable to continue to use the facility. The noise of the works is exceptionally loud in the hall where the vaccinations are taking place and the work is also disturbing dust and debris in the rafters which then fall on the clinical area.

The contractors are doing all they can to mitigate the impact but there is little that they can do differently whilst still completing the work.

Vaccination clinic at Town Hall to ‘go live’ on Monday

The decision has had to be taken very quickly and our vaccination team has been working hard to ensure a smooth transition to the new, temporary, venue at the Stonehaven Town Hall.

We plan to ‘go live’ on Monday 14th June.

We are in the process of contacting all of the local groups that currently use the Town Hall and will offer them, where we can, alternative accommodation. We anticipate that we will need to use the Town Hall until at least August.

Parking: There is paid for parking available in the Market Square and there is plenty of free on-street parking close by, including a disabled space close to the front door. There is also extra parking available at Baird Park and there are still spaces available at the Leisure Centre car park.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that all appointment letters are issued by the national system we will not be in a position to contact the people that have appointments scheduled for the week ahead at the Leisure Centre.
