Pfizer Covid vaccination walk-in appointments available at PRSA, Boston

Walk-in covid vaccinations will be available at PRSA Mass Vaccination Centre (MVC) from Tuesday 22nd until Friday 25th June inclusive, between 8am – 7pm.

Anyone who is eligible for Pfizer vaccination – i.e. anyone aged 39 or under – will be able to attend for a first dose vaccination or a second dose if there is a minimum eight week gap since their first dose, and the walk-ins will be available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

The walk-ins are for first and second doses of Pfizer.  You might already have had a first dose of Pfizer and not returned for a second dose – it is not too late to attend for your second dose and at no point is it necessary to start the course again.

AstraZeneca Covid vaccination walk-in appointments available at PRSA, Boston, and the Lincolnshire Showground

Both PRSA MVC and the Lincolnshire Showground MVC are also offering AstraZeneca walk-ins this week from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th June inclusive, between 8am – 7pm. Find out more…

“Once again the walk-ins are a fantastic opportunity for anyone who might have not taken up the offer to get vaccinated earlier on in the vaccination rollout, or would like to bring their second dose forwards provided they are at eight weeks or more since their first dose,” explains Rebecca Neno, Deputy Chief Nurse, NHS Lincolnshire CCG.

“Getting two doses of the vaccination ensures you have the maximum level of protection against covid.  In addition, we should all continue to follow the guidance around ‘hands, face, space, fresh air’, and I would strongly encourage anyone eligible to come forwards and take advantage of the walk-ins.

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 you are aged 18 or over you can also book an appointment via the national booking service.

We have good appointment availability across the county over the coming weeks at our Mass Vaccination Centres at the Lincolnshire Showground and PRSA, Boston, as well as at pharmacies in Lincoln and Boston, and also at the Meres Leisure Centre Local Vaccination Centre in Grantham,

You can find your NHS number online and please only attend if you are eligible. See more information about eligibility.
