Cumbernauld and Kilsyth to have new vaccination hub at Muirfield Centre

Cumbernauld and Kilsyth residents who are getting their vaccine will go to a new vaccination centre in the town.

As of Monday, July 12, Ravenscraig will no longer be used as the vaccination centre for Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, but instead, it will be Cumbernauld’s Muirfield Community Centre.

Vaccines were originally given at the Motherwell superhub but a host of complaints about travel issues has led to a new town centre location.

Occasional clinics were arranged on the Muirfield site and recently drop-in clinics, where no invitation has been required, have become common.

An NHS Lanarkshire spokesperson confirmed: “Due to the move to more local centres the dedicated vaccination shuttle bus from Cumbernauld to Ravenscraig will stop running. From this date, all appointments and drop-in clinics in this area will be at Muirfield Community Centre.

“The shuttle bus from Motherwell train station to Ravenscraig will continue to run throughout the summer, as this is a local centre for people in that area.”
