Those over 40 who haven’t had their first vaccine jab, or are seeking their second dose, eight or more weeks after their first, can do so without an appointment this Sunday (4th July).
Following on from the success of the first ‘grab a jab’ session on Tuesday, where over 80 people arrived unbooked to be vaccinated, the second session will run from midday until 7:30pm on Sunday (4th July) at The City Hall, Salisbury.
The walk-in clinics are designed to encourage more patients to come forward for the vaccine and organisers were delighted with the first event.
Vaccination centre director, Fiona Hyett said: “It was great to run the first vaccination walk-in clinic, this marks a significant milestone in the rollout of the vaccination programme. It was a successful first session and we were able to give the life-saving jab to 83 people who had been unable to previously book an appointment.”
She continued; “We will be holding further clinics and continue to ask everyone to come forward for their first and second jabs, either via booking an appointment through the National Booking Service or attending an appropriate walk-in clinic.”
