More walk-in vaccination clinics are being held this week, including one in Folkestone on Saturday, to make sure everyone has a chance to get a jab.
On Saturday 24 July, there will be a walk-in clinic open to everyone over the age of 18 at the town’s large vaccination site.
The Pfizer clinic will be at Folca (Old Debenhams Store), 48-66 Sandgate Road, Folkestone, CT20 1DN, between 10am and 5pm. No appointments are necessary.
A number of clinics are being held throughout the week across Kent and Medway and a full list is available on the CCG's website: www.kentandmedwayccg.nhs.uk/grabajab
Paula Wilkins, Chief Nurse at NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “Walk-in clinics continue to be an essential tool in making sure that as many people as possible receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
“Covid-19 restrictions may have relaxed but it’s more important than ever that as many people as possible have both doses of the vaccine, to keep themselves, their family and their community safe.”
Those who receive their first vaccination at the walk-in clinic in Folkestone, run by Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, are advised to visit the online national booking service a few days after their first jab to book their second dose.
A vaccination information helpline - 0330 320 4444 - has been set up to provide more information on the vaccine and answer any questions people may have. This is provided by Involve Kent, with translation available if needed. You cannot book a vaccine using the helpline.
Anyone aged over 18 can now have their Covid-19 vaccination. You can book an appointment online at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119, or you can pop along to one of our walk-in clinics.
More than two million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine have now been delivered at GP-led sites, large vaccination centres, community pharmacies and hospital hubs across Kent and Medway since the vaccine rollout started six months ago.
