If you are a health or social care worker and you are 11 weeks (77 days) post your first vaccination, you will be able to walk in to any of our sites during the opening times (see table below) and you will be able to receive your second vaccination. No appointment will be necessary. The same applies if you still haven't had your 1st dose, so please come forward to be vaccinated.

Please remember to bring your NHS number, proof of ID and vaccination card (if you've already received your first dose).
