There will be various walk-in opportunities at sites across Lincolnshire for people to get their coronavirus jabs this weekend.
Some 779 people took advantage of walk-in opportunities at vaccination sites last weekend, and it is hoped that this will continue again.
Further walk-in appointments will be available at the county’s two Mass Vaccination Centres at the Lincolnshire Showground and PRSA in Boston, as well as via mobile units at Brayford Wharf, the University of Lincoln’s Sports Centre, the Storehouse in Skegness, and at Marisco Medical Practice in Mablethorpe.

Rebecca Neno, Deputy Chief Nurse at NHS Lincolnshire CCG, said: “We hope that more people will take advantage of the walk-ins again this weekend, at our sites across the county.
“They are available in addition to the pre-bookable appointments available to book online or by calling 119, and we think they offer a degree of extra flexibility and convenience, because you don’t need to book in for a walk-in vaccination.
“The actual vaccination process is quick and easy. Importantly it’s not too late to get vaccinated, but you should bear in mind that you need two doses to get the maximum protection, and you should continue to follow the social distancing guidance and ‘hands, face, space, fresh air’ even after you have been vaccinated.”
