Popular gay nightclub Heaven has announced plans to become a COVID-19 vaccination spot in August.
Jeremy Joseph, who owns the iconic club, revealed that on 8 August unvaccinated club-goers will have the opportunity to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The innovative site will open at 12:00 pm and go on until 9:00 pm.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “[Heaven Nightclub] with [NHS England London] will be the first nightclub to be turned into a vaccination centre.”
He continued: “Just turn up on the day or book an appointment online… protect yourselves, protect others.”
London’s Night Czar, Amy Lamé, also praised the collaboration in a statement on Twitter.
“Heaven will be the UK’s first nightclub to be turned into a pop-up vax centre,” she wrote.
“Nightclubs have always been part of the COVID solution, and I am really proud to be working with NHS England, Westminster City Council and Jeremy Joseph to make this happen.”
Earlier this year, Joseph urged officials to convert the legendary nightclub into a vaccination hub.
In a January Twitter post, he revealed that he wrote to the Westminster Council suggesting that they use the building, stating: “It’s an empty venue already split into booths.”
He continued: “It would be an honour if it was used while closed to help vaccinate people.”
The news comes days after reports revealed the slight decline of COVID-19 cases in the UK.
According to the government’s daily statistics summary, the UK has seen a 33% fall of cases from 25 July and 31 July.
But the data has shown a 9.2 increase in deaths among people who tested positive within 28 days. There has also been an increase in admitted patients.
