Anyone attending for a no-appointment booster needs to bring their invitation letter or text as proof of their eligibility.
There are currently around 80 dates and locations for walk-in clinics listed on the local COVID-19 website HERE, which is updated daily, on the places eligible people can turn up for vaccination.
If your GP has invited you to be vaccinated, please take up the offer. If you have received a booster dose invitation from the NHS directly and prefer to make a booked appointment at a vaccination centre or community pharmacy, you are still able to do so via the national website HERE or by calling 119
The booster jabs are available to people who have had their 2nd dose of vaccine at least six months ago and are:
• Aged 50 years and over
• Living in a residential care home for older adults
• A frontline health and social care worker
• Aged 16 to 49 years and living with an underlying health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe COVID-19
• Are an adult household contact of immunosuppressed individuals
Dr Ed Garratt, chief executive, Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care System, said: “Our local health system has been performing very well on delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
“We are determined to maintain that momentum by making access to the booster jabs as easy as possible for those who are eligible. So from now, once people have their received their invite they can simply turn up at a walk-in clinic.
“The booster will provide a vital extra layer of protection ahead of winter and I encourage people to take up the offer – but please don’t forget to bring along your proof of eligibility.”
Those people who are still to receive their 1st or 2nd dose of vaccine are also encouraged to either book an appointment or visit a walk-in clinic.
