A Sikh temple in Luton has turned into a vaccination clinic.

Dozens of people from different religious backgrounds received a jab today after the pop up clinic opened. 

Each April Sikhs worldwide celebrate Vaisakhi, which marks the anniversary of Sikhism becoming a collective faith. 

Whilst coronavirus restrictions have prevented them from celebrating in the usual way, Luton's Guru Nanak Gurdwara (temple) set up the Vaisakhi vaccine clinic.
