Stadium drop-in jabs
A drop-in clinic is opening at Stoke Mandeville stadium this weekend for eligible people to get their first or second Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccine without a pre-booked appointment.
Drop-in clinics (pictured) will be open on:
- Friday 4 June – 10am to 12.30pm and 2.30pm to 5pm
- Saturday 5 June – 9.30am to 1pm
Regardless of whether people are permanent Bucks residents or not, anyone aged over 40 who has not yet had their first vaccine or those over 18 who need their second jab (a minimum of four weeks after their first) is eligible to attend. All they need is name, date of birth and NHS number. NHS numbers can be found online at:
People who cannot find their NHS number in advance, are advised not worry, as they can still be vaccinated, but an appointment may just take a little longer.
Dr Raj Bajwa, GP and Chair of NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group said: ‘We are really pleased to be able to offer this additional service to allow people to get their vaccine as quickly and easily as possible. As we continue to progress through vaccinating different age groups … we want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get their jab.
‘As we continue to see new variants of COVID-19 appearing around the world it is important to remember that one of our best lines of defence is through the vaccine. It’s really important that all those eligible come forward to get their jab when notified.’
