Walk-in Covid-19 vaccinations are available in Bishop's Stortford again this weekend.

Eligible people can just turn up at the jab centre at Avanti Meadows Primary School in Farnham Road, St Michael's Hurst, on Sunday only (May 23), between 3pm and 5.30pm, for the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine.

So far, 814,227 people have received at least their first vaccination in Hertfordshire and West Essex. They are among over 30.4 million people across England who have had jabs. Vaccinators have visited all care homes in Herts and west Essex. More than 4,500 local volunteers have provided over 47,000 hours of support.

Dr Jane Halpin, chief executive of the clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) for Herts and West Essex, is encouraging those across Hertfordshire and west Essex who are eligible for the walk-in jabs to protect themselves.

She said: "Some people have told us they like to be able just to turn up at a vaccination centre, particularly those with unpredictable work schedules or family commitments. That's why we're offering more of these clinics in the days ahead.

"If you prefer the certainty of a guaranteed booked appointment at a particular time you can call 119, use the National Booking Service website or respond to an invitation to be vaccinated by your GP, if they are continuing to offer this service.

"With a range of permanent and temporary pop-up clinics in local communities, booked appointments and walk-in sessions, we're doing all we can to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get the protection that they need."

Currently, those aged 40-plus and those in a priority group who are over 40 can get their first vaccination at an AZ clinic.

Those aged 50 and over or who are in a priority group who had their first AZ vaccine at least eight weeks ago are now encouraged to get their second jab at an AZ clinic as soon as possible, without waiting until 12 weeks have passed. They can also book an earlier appointment via the National Booking Service or by calling 119.

People aged 34 to 39 are now eligible to have their first Pfizer or Moderna vaccination. The majority of Pfizer clinics have to be booked in advance, but there are some pop-up clinics in Hertfordshire this weekend. Robertson House in Stevenage is offering walk-in Moderna clinics.

When you book online, you will only be offered clinics that are offering a vaccine suitable for your age group.

Pregnant women are advised to have the Pfizer or Moderna vaccination.

Priority groups include:

  • Front-line health and social care workers
  • People aged 16 or over who are known to be clinically extremely vulnerable or with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
  • People who care for someone who is at high risk from Covid-19
  • People who live with someone who is immuno-suppressed.

Remember to wear a mask or face covering when you attend a vaccination clinic and take your NHS number or another identification document with you if you can.
