A huge vaccination hub praised by Boris Johnson is being relocated to an empty PC World.

The jab site currently located at the old Saga call centre premises in Haine Road, Ramsgate, will move to the vacant outlet at Westwood, near to Tesco Extra on Margate Road.

The last day at the Saga building - which was visited by Mr Johnson before Christmas - will be January 13, with the move taking place to the unit on January 15.

A NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group spokesman said there isn't any planned downtime during the relocation.

"Thanet vaccination centre has been enormously successful with more than 200,000 vaccinations given in 12 months," she said.

"It was also recently visited by the Prime Minister who commented on its outstanding success helping to protect people in the local area.

"The team is moving a short distance to the former PC World store in Westwood Cross, where it will continue to offer vaccines to the people of Thanet and east Kent.

"The new site will still be known as Thanet vaccination centre.

"In the meantime, there are plenty of places in Kent and Medway to be vaccinated."
