Summer opening hours for large-scale vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
After a busy few months delivering the Spring booster campaign, the large-scale vaccination sites are beginning to quieten down across the county.
As a result Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust are now temporarily reducing the opening hours at two sites from seven days to four from July 4 to September 5.
These include the Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech which will be open for walk-ins and booked appointments on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 8.30am and 4pm, as well as on Mondays between 8.30am and 7.30pm.
The Eatons Community Centre in St Neots is the other site and it will be open for walk-ins and booked appointments on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays between 8.30am and 4.00pm, as well as on Tuesdays between 8.30am and 7.30pm.
Normal opening hours will remain at the following sites:
· The Grafton Centre in Cambridge
· The Oaktree Centre in Huntingdon
· Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough
· Chesterton Indoor Bowls Centre in Cambridge
There is still plenty of opportunity for people, including children from the age of five, to get their first, second or third primary dose (if they were immunosuppressed at the time they had these).
In addition, people 75 and older, and those aged 12 years and older who are severely immunosuppressed, are encouraged to come forward for their Spring booster as soon as possible if they haven’t already done so.
Dr David Vickers, medical director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, said: “Vaccines remain our best line of defence against coronavirus, and we thank those who have already had their Covid-19 vaccination.
“We’ve currently administered more than 1.4 million doses of the vaccine as part of the largest and most successful vaccination programme in NHS history, however it’s not too late for anyone who’s eligible to be vaccinated - you can simply walk-in or book an appointment online via the National Booking Service or by ringing 119 free of charge.”
