PEOPLE in Worcester hoping to have their Covid booster can grab a jab this weekend.

The "Big Weekend" is encouraging as many people as possible in the city to get their boosters ahead of Christmas.

This weekend the vaccine sites at Warndon Community Hub and St John's Medical Centre will be offering walk-in vaccinations throughout the day.

Warndon will be offering the jabs from 9am until 4.30pm on Friday and Saturday (November 26 and 27) and St John's will be offering jabs from 9am till 4.30pm on Saturday, November 27 and Sunday from 9am until 2pm.

A spokesman for the Worcester City Primary Care Network said: "If you're eligible for your booster jab, we're running even more walk-in clinics in Worcester next weekend.

"There's no need to book an appointment - and getting your jab now means you'll be enjoying the benefits of maximum immunity by Christmas.

"You can also visit us for your first dose, or your second dose if your first was Pfizer, and your first jab was more than eight weeks ago."

Due to high demand at walk-in sites across Worcestershire the PCN recommends checking its website before travelling to a vaccine site, especially if you are going in the afternoon.

A number of Grab a Jab weekends have been held in Worcester as the Covid vaccination effort is ramped up.

This weekend, people were turned away from the St Peter's Baptist Church walk-in clinic after it reached full capacity.

To be eligible for the Covid booster jab you must have had your second vaccination at least six months ago, be 40 and over, live and work in a care home, be a front-line health and social care worker. Also eligible are people 16 and over who have a medical condition that puts them at greater risk, care for or live with someone who is high risk.

People who are pregnant and in one of these groups are also eligible.
