Health bosses are urging those eligible for a Covid-19 to make use of a walk-in system this weekend – as concerns were raised over increasing infection rates in Nottinghamshire.
Walk-in Covid-19 jabs are available this weekend in Nottingham and Mansfield – and anyone currently eligible is invited to get vaccinated without having to book.
All those eligible for their Covid vaccine will be able to receive a Pfizer vaccine at either the Forest Recreation site in Nottingham or Mansfield Vaccination Centre.
Those currently eligible include any member of the public aged 25 and over as well as those who are clinically vulnerable, clinically extremely vulnerable and carers.
Both the sites will be open from 8am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday (June 12 and 13) offering walk-in appointments to anyone eligible for their first dose.
Amanda Sullivan, Accountable Officer for NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “By having these two sites open to walk-in appointments across the weekend we hope that lots of people will hear about the offer and decide to get their jab.
“The process will be quick and easy and there will be no need to book an appointment. If you are eligible and have yet to book your first dose of the vaccine then please do come and get your jab over the weekend.
“I would urge the public to get down to the sites early if they would like to receive a vaccine.
“We know the rate of infection is increasing nationally and we are seeing increases in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire too.
“We have seen in the past that a few cases can very quickly lead to a big increase in community transmission.
“That is why it is important that we all get our vaccine and protect ourselves as soon as possible.”
Both the sites will be offering the Pfizer vaccine to any member of the public who is yet to have their first dose.
The vaccination sites can be found at:
- Forest Recreation Ground Vaccination Site: Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham NG7 6AQ
- Mansfield Vaccination Centre: Former Wickes Shop, 134 Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield, NG19 7AP
