The NHS is reminding the public about the importance of the booster vaccine ahead of winter.
In a bid to get eligible people in for booster jabs as soon as possible, certain vaccination sites will now be accepting walk ins.
Boosters are being offered to over 50s, people over 16 with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19, and health and social care workers. These groups can have their booster once six months has passed since their second dose.
Those eligible for a booster vaccination are being contacted by the NHS inviting them to book in for their jabs in the coming days and weeks. Invites are being sent by letter or text.
However, if a person is eligible and has not yet received an invitation, they will be able to walk into certain sites to receive their booster. The sites accepting walk-ins for boosters are as follows:
Rosa Waddingham, Chief Nurse at NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “I would urge everyone eligible for a booster to take up the offer ahead of what is expected to be a tough winter period for the NHS. Getting a top-up vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones.
“Locally we have dozens of pharmacies and GP practices inviting eligible patients forward for a booster but if you are eligible and have not yet been invited, we are offering walk-in appointments at certain sites. Please use the GrabAJab website to find site opening times.”
On arrival at the walk-in sites, clinicians will double check your details to check you are eligible for a booster vaccine. You do not need to bring any documents with you.
