Grab a jab weekend - drop in sessions for your first Covid jab launched

Ross Crawford 24th Jun, 2021 Updated: 24th Jun, 2021

THIS has been dubbed ‘Grab a Jab’ weekend by the NHS for anyone over the age of 18 to walk in and get their first Covid-19 vaccination.

Centres in Worcestershire working as walk in centres are Worcester Guild Hall, this Friday, June 25 and Sunday, June 27, and the Artrix in Bromsgrove on Saturday, June 26.

Artrix will be open from 2pm to 6pm and the Guildhall from 10am to 4pm on both days.

There will be no need to book, just turn up and have your vaccine but bring some photo ID to prove your age.

The Moderna vaccination is on offer at the Guildhall and the Pfizer is on offer at Artrix and will be available for attendees to receive their first doses only.

Dr Kathryn Cobain, director of public health for Worcestershire said: “Across Worcestershire, our vaccine programme has been really successful, the numbers of people taking up the offer of a vaccine have been positive.

“We are so grateful to everyone who has come forward so far across the county.

“This should make it easier for our younger residents to get their first vaccine, as they can just drop by and be seen.

“Clinics like these make it much easier and more convenient for people come forward and to get vaccinated.

“Vaccination is so important, not only as it protects the person receiving the vaccine but it also helps to protect their loved ones and local residents.”

Simon Trickett, chief executive officer for NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG said: “As the nation gears up for the removal of Covid restrictions in July, it is more important than ever that all adults get their vaccine, to protect themselves and those around them.”

The walk-in clinics are part of a nationwide initiative happening over this weekend called Grab a Jab Walk-In Weekend, giving those who haven’t already had their first vaccination an opportunity to do so.

You don’t need to be registered with a GP to access the vaccination.
