Those with underlying health conditions, their carers and helpers invited to walk-in COVID-19 vaccination appointments

Walk-in appointments are being offered for those with an underlying health conditions or their carers and helpers who aren’t fully vaccinated against COVID-19 yet.

The appointments for those aged 16 and over are available at the PRSA Mass Vaccination Centre, Boston, on Sunday 2-5pm, Monday 9am-12 noon, and Tuesday 3-6pm.

A spokesman for the Lincolnshire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The walk in sessions are open to anyone in cohort six who has not yet received a first vaccination, or has received their first vaccination eight weeks or more prior and would like to attend earlier to receive their second dose.

“One hundred vaccinations will be available each day on a walk-in basis and will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone who might have not taken up the offer to get vaccinated earlier on in the vaccination rollout. 

“Vaccine availability will be in line with JCVI guidance with those aged 40 and over offered either Pfizer or AstraZeneca, however, there will be no individual choice of vaccine.  Those aged 39 and under will be offered the Pfizer vaccine. 

“We expect the walk in sessions to be busy so please do be patient if you have to wait a few minutes.  There is no requirement to be registered with a GP or to have an NHS number to attend, however, if you do have an NHS number and have it to hand this can speed up the process.  If the limited number of vaccines have been used, you will have the option to book an appointment for a future date.”
