ROLL UP! ROLL UP! COME & GET YOUR COVID VACCINATION AT THIS WEEKEND'S WALK-IN CLINICS

Local health and care leaders are asking people across Coventry and Warwickshire to roll up at a pop-up vaccination clinic and roll up their sleeves to get their vital first or second doses of the vaccine this weekend.

Dr Sarah Raistrick, local GP and Chair of Coventry and Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Groups said: “Last weekend our clinics proved a huge success, with us vaccinating over 8,500 local people. We’re hoping to repeat that again by offering more pop-up clinics in more locations to make it easy for everyone to have their vaccinations at a place convenient for them.

“What we did see last weekend was people turning up for their second vaccination with too short a gap after their first. We are pleased so many people understand the importance of having both jabs, but to ensure the most effective protection, we do have to turn people away if their first dose was less than eight weeks ago.”

No appointments are needed for this weekend’s pop-up clinics, anyone wanting their vaccination can drop by at a time to suit them.
