Pop-up walk-in vaccination clinics and walk-in sessions at hospital hubs offering Covid-19 boosters have been set up in Cambridgeshire.

They are part of the drive towards hitting the government target of offering all adults a booster by the end of the year to fight the Omicron variant.

Anyone over 18 who had their second Covid vaccination at least three months ago can turn up at the following walk-in clinics to get their booster. Hospital hubs are also offering first and second jabs to anyone aged 18 or over.

  • Outpatients Department at Peterborough City Hospital – 8am until 3pm

Two pop-up vaccination sites are also operating on December 29 at:

Sunday, January 2, 2022

Anyone attending one of these walk-in clinics should wear a mask and is asked to ensure they also cancel any previous appointments they may have made through the National Booking Service to receive their booster at a later date, so that the slot can be freed up for another patient.

If you are looking to get your booster at a different site, you will need to book it via www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119.

Dr Gary Howsam, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group clinical chair, said: “We’ve been working around the clock to increase appointments available and these new walk-in clinics mean we can now offer thousands of additional local residents the opportunity to receive their potentially life-saving booster before Christmas.

“Locally, we have already delivered 387,000 booster vaccinations, and are giving thousands more daily. This would not have been possible without the incredible efforts of our GPs, pharmacists, hospital hubs, large scale vaccination centres, and volunteers who continue to work tirelessly to help protect communities against the new Omicron variant.

“Anyone aged 18 or over who is eligible for their booster is encouraged to pop along to one of these walk-in vaccination clinics over the coming days so you can ensure you protect yourself, your loved ones and our NHS. You can also continue to book an appointment if you prefer via the National Booking Service online or by calling 119.”

The CCG said it delivered a record 72,000 vaccinations in the week after the Prime Minister announced that the government was bringing forward the target for offering all adults a booster by a month. This smashed the previous record of 66,000 vaccinations given in one week set in January 2021.

Primary care network sites are also vaccinating again - delivering 300 per cent more vaccinations than they had in previous weeks since the government announcement.

Large-scale vaccination centres have increased their capacity and are expected to go further and local community pharmacies are also delivering more vaccinations in communities.

In Cambridgeshire alone, 60,725 boosters were given between December 13-19, which was more than double the 29,151 given in the preceding week.

Any patient who has not yet had their first and second dose has also been reminded that the offer of the vaccine will always remain - and the rise of the Omicron variant seems to have encouraged more to do so.

The number of people coming forward for first doses rose to 1,811 from December 13-19, compared to 1,139 in the seven days before.

First, second or third primary doses are available on a walk-in basis at large-scale vaccination sites in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The one exception is those aged 12-15 looking for their second dose, who are asked to book by visiting www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or calling 119.
