The Automobile Association (AA) has announced that it will be supplying local authorities with a new type of directional road sign to COVID-19 vaccination centres for free. 

Hundreds of temporary vaccination centres are being opened across the country to help efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, but vaccinating vast numbers of people who may not be familiar with the exact location of the centres could be disrupted or slowed by navigational problems. These signs are intended to help provide useful directions to members of the public to prevent this. 

The free signs will read “COVID-19 vaccination centre” and include a directional arrow. A statement by the AA said that the Association expected to supply up to 5,000 signs and that they would be made of completely recycled plastic.   

Commenting, Transport Minister Baroness Vere said: “It’s fantastic to see the AA offering to provide free signs to local authorities directing people to vaccination centres. Their expertise will help people reach their centre, contributing to the already huge national effort underway to get people vaccinated.”
