More pop-up COVID vaccination sessions – and a Lincolnshire jab bus!

More than 20 walk-in sessions

The latest list of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sessions in Lincolnshire has been announced, including the chance to get your jab on board on a specially re-purposed bus.

The bus was loaned to the vaccination programme by Lincolnshire County Council, who previously used it for COVID testing.

It was officially launched during a visit to the Tesco store on Wragby Road in Lincoln this week. The bus is offering spring boosters to those aged 75 and over, as well as vaccinations to people aged 18 and over.

The latest schedule of pop-up locations shown below – and details on which age groups they are vaccinating – can be found here, and there is still the option to book via the National Booking System or by calling 119.

In addition to the main list of jab sessions, the team at PRSA in Boston is now also offering walk-in vaccinations for stem cell transplant patients aged 12 and over to have their booster (fourth) dose or their spring (fifth) dose, or for stem cell transplant patients who need to restart their course.

These will be held every Monday between 10am and 11am except on May 23 and 30.

Rebecca Neno, director of COVID and influenza vaccination programmes at NHS Lincolnshire CCG, said: “We’re putting a lot of effort into our pop-up programme around the county and the introduction of the bus gives us an extra degree of agility, because it allows us to take the COVID vaccination out to people.

“We already know that people like that they can turn up to any of our pop-up sessions without an appointment and the bus will allow us to focus on specific areas where there may be more of a need for us to visit.

“It will be an important addition to our pop-up programme over the coming weeks and we are very grateful to our colleagues at Lincolnshire County Council.”
