King’s College will host a walk-in vaccination clinic this weekend as efforts continue to drive up the number of people receiving their first and second doses.

For the first time, The Hub at Cambourne will also be turned into a walk-in jab clinic for a day.

These are among a host of locations announced as part of The Vaccinators on Tour campaign by NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), designed to bring walk-in clinics into local communities.

The additional sessions - detailed in full below - are on top of the sites already running daily or regular walk-in sessions throughout July, such at Chesterton Bowls Club and The Grafton in Cambridge. You can get a full list of those here.

With the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus spreading rapidly, and the ending of government lockdown restrictions due from Monday July 19, there is a big push to drive up vaccination rates, which are lagging behind in Cambridge in particular.

Walk-in clinics are open to anyone over 18 for first or second doses without an appointment. You cannot have your second dose until eight weeks after your first - you will be turned away if you arrive earlier than that. The second dose is known to be important in conferring additional protection against the virus.

You must wear a face covering at the walk-in clinics. You may wish to take a bottle of water and, if you have a card from your first jab, take it along so the batch number of your second dose can be filled in. Bring ID if you wish, but it is not required.

Dr Gary Howsam, local GP and CCG chair said: “Our amazing Vaccinators on Tour are continuing their hard work to make sure everyone gets their vaccine. The walk-in clinics are in addition to our bookable vaccination centres, making it even easier for people to get vaccinated.

“We have already seen an increase in infection rates, due to the Delta variant, so it is still really important to get vaccinated. Covid-19 hasn’t gone away and it’s important you get your vaccine as soon as you can. The walk-ins are open to anyone over 18 who needs a first or second dose, the second dose is really important to make sure you’ve got the best protection.”

The sessions are offering either the AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, as detailed below.
