Pre-booked and walk-in appointments will be available at this clinic. Booked appointments can be made via the National Booking Service.

Dr Russell Hearn, Clinical Lead, said: “We’ve seen a rapid increase in infection rates recently with the emergence of the Omicron variant, and so it’s even more crucial for people to get vaccinated. This will help boost your immunity and reduce the risk of becoming seriously ill or passing on the virus. Vaccination remains our best defence against COVID-19 and we wanted to make it easier for as many people as possible to get vaccinated at a time that’s convenient for them, whether day or night. Our dedicated team will be doing all we can to get as many people protected as possible.”
