BBC Radio Berkshire visited the JMIC Mosque vaccination centre at Stoke Poges Lane in Slough to report on an initiative to transform places of worship into vaccination centres, in areas where vaccination rates are lower.
The advantages of having the vaccine at a smaller site is highlighted in this broadcast, including time to ask questions and less sensory distractions. Scroll to 1hr 23mins and 1hr 51mins to hear the interview with Zack Ali: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p09dd19r
