Plan your journey
The COVID-19 vaccination centre at Chester Racecourse is now open with the plan to deliver thousands of COVID-19 vaccines every week for people in key priority groups as part of the national vaccination programme.
It is located close to Chester's 'Clockwise route', the road diversion scheme put in place while a vital new drainage tunnel is built for the city centre.
If you have been invited for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment at Chester, you are asked to take extra time and care if you are unfamiliar with the new Clockwise route for the inner ring road. Please use a phone sat nav on handsfree to get the most up-to-date routes, journey time information and live updates on traffic, even if familiar with the route.
The Chester Racecourse video provides insight into what to expect when arriving at the regional NHS Vaccination Centre.
The Council has arranged for a bus to operate from the Chester Bus Interchange to the Racecourse. This link will operate every 20 minutes between 9.30am and 3.30pm, Mondays to Fridays, and until 4.30pm on Saturdays, to enable people to use public transport to get to the vaccination centre.
The Park and Ride service is also available for people who do not want to drive into the city centre itself, with route PR1, between Wrexham Road Park and Ride and the city centre, stopping at The Abode, in Grosvenor Road, just a short walk from the racecourse.
All bus services are COVID-safe.
