DCHS is offering a walk-in Covid vaccination service – no appointments necessary – for anyone who is 16 or over, this Saturday at Shirebrook Health Centre.
It is open to everyone who has turned 16 or even those who turn 16 on Saturday. People can just turn up – they don’t need to bring ID/proof of age with them as all that is checked during the quick registration process once they arrive. The best news for most 16 and 17 year olds is they only need the one jab (no need for second doses in this age group).
In addition to offering this session to 16 and 17 year olds, we’d also welcome anyone of 18 and over – any adults - who haven’t had a first jab yet. We can also give second doses to over-18s but these must be given at least eight weeks after their first doses (please don’t turn up sooner as we won’t be able to give you the second vaccination any sooner than eight weeks – this is in line with national guidance).
