More walk-in clinics open as push to get everyone vaccinated continues

More walk in grab-a-jab COVID vaccination clinics will be held over this weekend ahead of the lifting of restrictions on July 19.

They will be held in the Tamworth and Lichfield areas and anyone can get a first or second vaccination without an appointment. If it’s a second dose you must have had your first dose at least eight weeks ago.

Dr Paddy Hannigan, Clinical Lead for the vaccination programme said: “With warmer weather on the way and the lifting of restrictions we know people are going to be mixing more freely although I’d really urge caution and remind people about hands, face, space and fresh air.

“However vaccinations offer the best chance of protection from COVID, both for individuals and their family, friends and colleagues.

“If you haven’t been vaccinated the clinics offer a fast and convenient method of getting protected and helping prevent future restriction being necessary.”

more walk-in clinics will be coming soon.

Vaccination centres across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent will also be vaccinating people with booked appointments.

You can also book vaccinations by calling 119 or via the National Booking System.
