Places as odd as museums, concert halls to sport stadiums have all doubled up as Covid-19 jab hotspots.

As countries around the world have kept the vaccination drives going on, people have been proudly photographing or flaunting their jabbed selves but one thing that have stood out is the locations. In order to ensure that maximum number of people are vaccinated, the governments have also entrusted a significant portion of the job to private entities. Places as odd as museums, concert halls to sport stadiums have all doubled up as Covid-19 jab hotspots. Here’s a look at some of the oddest places that are rolling out vaccine doses for the public:

Salisbury Cathedral

The 800-year-old Salisbury Cathedral in the UK was one of several British cathedrals to open as a vaccination centre earlier this year. Those awaiting their shots could enjoy organ music to calm any last-minute nerves. Last week, the final vaccinations were given by the NHS team within the cathedral and now the vaccine spot has been moved to another cathedral building, the Leaden Hall.
