HUNDREDS of walk-in sites across the country are now offering booster vaccines as the NHS ‘Grab-a-Jab’ campaign returns, making it even easier for people who are eligible to get their top-up jab.

In just over six weeks since the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme began delivering boosters, more than six million people have had their vital top-up dose, including those who are clinically vulnerable and work in health and social care.

As the programme continues to protect the country against the virus, those who are eligible for a booster dose can now use the NHS online walk-in finder to find the most convenient site to get their top-up without an appointment.

Some walk in centres are also offering vaccinations to 12-15 year olds, and parents should check the ‘Grab-a-Jab’ website to find their nearest centre, which is updated each day as new sites open up.

Parents can continue to use the national booking service to book their child’s jab or through the ongoing schools programme.

Dr Nikki Kanani, GP and deputy lead for the NHS covid-19 vaccination programme said: “The booster is not just a nice to have – it is really important protection ahead of what we know will be a challenging winter.

“So if you are eligible, please do check the site finder and go get your jab”.
