Local GP Federation, Alliance for Better, is managing multiple walk-in sessions, which are aimed to make access to the vaccine 'even easier'.
Katherine Saunders, CEO, Alliance for Better Care said: “We want to make access to the vaccine as simple as possible and these sessions may provide a better option for some
"We simply ask that patients check beforehand which vaccine is being administered at each clinic and whether it is a first or second dose session, so that they can ensure they attend a clinic that is suitable for them.”
For second doses, patients need to be at least eight weeks from the first vaccine and they will need to receive the same vaccine type as their first dose.
