Grab a jab

We are hosting a walk-in covid-19 vaccine clinic Saturday 31st July 10am-3pm @ Trinity Medical Centre (Staff car park)

The vaccines available are Astrazeneca and Pfizer

Who can attend?

  • Anyone aged 18 or over
  • You do not need to have an NHS number or be registered with a GP.
  • Anyone who is due their second dose and had their first dose at least 8 weeks ago. (Getting the second dose is vital to getting longer lasting and maximum protection, and is especially important to ensure you are protected against the Delta variant).
  • If you already have an appointment booked for a later date, you can still get a jab at a walk-in clinic but please make sure you cancel your booked appointment so someone else can use it.

About walk-in clinics

  • Clinics will be on a first come, first served basis. There may be queues at busy times so people should come prepared for the weather and bring a drink of water. You will also need a mask or face covering.
  • If there is high demand and supplies are used up, clinics may have to close early. This will be communicated via social media.
  • People who already have an appointment booked at a site offering walk-in vaccines should still attend at their timed slot and they will receive their vaccine as planned. Appointments can still be booked at www.nhs.uk/CovidVaccination or by calling 119.
  • If you have any questions about the vaccine before having it, you will be able to discuss these with a member of staff first.
  • Anyone who has their first dose this weekend will be able to book their second dose on the national booking service from 24 hours afterwards. (Visit www.nhs.uk/CovidVaccination or call 119).
  • In line with the latest guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations, people aged 39 and under and all pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
  • If you are having a second dose, this will be the same vaccine you had for your first vaccination.
