Covid vaccination walk-in appointments available for people aged over 50

People over the age of 50 who have not yet received their first covid vaccination are being offered the chance to attend a walk-in clinic at the Lincolnshire Showground Large Vaccination Centre tomorrow, Thursday 8 April, between 8am and 5pm, without a pre-booked appointment.

“We have vaccinated thousands of over 50s across the county and are very keen to ensure anyone over 50 who is yet to have their first vaccination has the opportunity to do so, which is why we are running the walk-in appointments tomorrow.  If you would like to come for your vaccination, please remember to bring your NHS number with you (Find my NHS number online),” explains Terry Vine, Clinical and Operational Lead for the Lincolnshire Large Vaccination Centre.

The walk-in appointments do not need to be pre-booked.  If you decide to attend, please bear in mind there is a separate GP vaccination service also running from the same site at Lincolnshire Showground, so if you are asked on arrival please state that you are attending a walk-in appointment at the NHS site.

If you are under 50 and think you are eligible for a vaccination (i.e. as a carer or as someone with underlying health conditions) you should book in online or call 119.  Anyone under the age of 50 who is not currently eligible will not be vaccinated.
