Covid vaccination walk-in appointments available for people in cohort 6, and/or those who are carers or informal carers, at PRSA, Boston

People in Lincolnshire in cohort 6 – those aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions – as well as carers and informal carers, are being offered the chance to attend a covid vaccination walk-in clinic at the PRSA Mass Vaccination Centre, Boston, on Sunday 2-5pm, Monday 9am-12 noon, and Tuesday 3-6pm.

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. .

You can find your NHS number online here www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/ and please only attend if you are eligible – click the following link for more information on eligibility https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/
