This week Nottingham and Nottinghamshire hit a milestone as more than one million vaccinations were administered since the start of the programme. Reaching one million vaccines is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work of NHS staff, the teams working operationally behind the scenes, those who have retrained to help and the many volunteers who we could not deliver this programme without.
Currently, those aged 25 and over can book an appointment by calling 119 or visiting the National Booking Website. Any member of the public aged 40 and over, clinically vulnerable, clinically extremely vulnerable and carers who have not had their Covid-19 vaccine are able to walk-in to a number of locations and have a vaccination without booking. The walk-in service is available at: the Forest Recreation Ground, King’s Meadow Campus, Gamston Community Centre, Ashfield Health Village, Newark Showground, Richard Herrod Centre and Mansfield Vaccination Centre.
This weekend all those eligible for their Covid-19 vaccine will be able to receive a Pfizer vaccine at either the Forest Recreation site or Mansfield Vaccination Centre. Both the sites will be open from 8am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday offering walk-in appointments to anyone eligible for their first dose. Find out more here.
