Eligible people living in Leicester can get the covid vaccine at two drop-in clinics this Sunday and Monday at the Peepul Centre.
The NHS in Leicester is encouraging those who are eligible and not yet had their first vaccine dose to come forward now, while vaccine levels are plentiful, as supplies are expected to dip in April.
No appointment is needed, people can drop in anytime between 9am and 6pm on Sunday 28th and Monday 29th March.
The clinics are open to the following eligible groups:
- People aged 50 or over
- People with a health condition which puts them at higher risk from covid. For more details on which conditions this covers please visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/who-can-get-the-vaccine/
- Unpaid carers who live in the same household as those they care for – for example older people or people with a disability
- Anyone who has previously been invited for a vaccine but not yet made an appointment.
Unpaid carers will not be asked to evidence this but all groups will need to provide some form of ID on arrival to verify who you are and if you unable to provide this you may be turned away.
The Peepul Centre is on Orchardson Ave, Leicester LE4 6DP.
Vaccinations can still be booked at other hospital sites, as well as through GP practices. For further details of these options visit: https://www.leicestercityccg.nhs.uk/my-health/coronavirus-advice/coronavirus-vaccine/
