TV set where Peaky Blinders is filmed is converted into a mass Covid vaccination centre

A Victorian museum made famous as the set of the hit TV gangster series Peaky Blinders has now been opened as a Covid-19 vaccination centre.

The Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands, opened its doors this morning in an effort to help priority patients and healthcare workers receive their jabs.

The attraction has formerly been used as the filming location for the BAFTA-award winning BBC series set in 1900s England, which stars Cillian Murphy and Helen McCrory

It is hoped that thousands of injections will be carried out over the coming weeks at the museum, which is currently closed to tourists during lockdown.

Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member for health and adult social care at Dudley Council, said: ‘This is a real game changer in our fight across the borough against the coronavirus.

‘Having the Black Country Living Museum on board as a vaccination centre will greatly increase the amount of jabs we can deliver, and the speed at which we can administer them.

‘It will make people safer from this deadly virus more quickly.

‘The NHS will be in touch with people as and when they become eligible for the vaccine via GPs, healthcare professionals and employers, and when you are invited to get yours, I would strongly advise you to have it.

‘We have always said we will beat this, and we are getting closer to that day. But we still need to remain vigilant.’

Andrew Lovett, museum chief executive, said: ‘By hosting the vaccine centre at the museum we’re able to support the NHS in providing immunisation for the local community.

‘People who book an appointment when they’re eligible and receive the vaccine will be helping the NHS in the most important public health initiative it has ever undertaken.

‘The vaccination programme is obviously a very important part of combatting the spread of Covid-19; although, in the meantime, continuing to adhere to restrictions and hygiene measures also remains critical.’

Sally Roberts, chief nurse from Black Country and West Birmingham CCGs, added: ‘Our progress to date has been incredible and I am delighted that our first vaccination centre, which will be capable of delivering thousands more vaccines each week is going live.

‘We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please do not try to book or go to the vaccination centre before you receive a letter from the NHS booking service.’
