The team at Ely Cathedral say the historic building was put forward to be used as a Covid-19 vaccination centre - but "a more preferable location" was chosen after an onsite assessment.
"As a large building in the centre of the community, we naturally put ourselves forward to be considered as a vaccination centre," said an Ely Cathedral spokesman.
"We are delighted to see that several of our fellow cathedrals are being used as Covid-19 vaccination centres.
"We had an onsite assessment in December but were later informed that a more preferable location had been chosen.
"While this was disappointing for the team at the Cathedral, we appreciate that other locations were better suited."
