Where to grab-a-jab this weekend

Published: Fri 16th July, 2021

Press release shared on behalf of the NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Anyone aged 18+ in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who has not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 or is due their second dose can grab-a-jab this weekend at several drop-in and bookable clinics.

Extra clinics have been arranged to make it as easy as possible for people to protect themselves and others against the virus before restrictions lift on Monday.

People who had their first dose at least eight weeks ago can attend the clinics to have their second dose of the same vaccine.

Caroline Trevithick, Executive Director of Nursing, Quality and Performance at the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland CCGs, said: “As the restrictions lift on Monday, and with the virus still being a concern, it is important that we remain cautious. The more people who have the vaccine, the better our chance of beating the virus.

"It is more than about protecting yourself. Many people with Covid don’t have symptoms and the vaccine will help prevent you from spreading it without knowing, particularly to those who might be vulnerable and more likely to be hospitalised."
