Walk-in centre opening times

We are holding drop-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics at many of our vaccination centres. 

Please check the clinic you plan to attend is suitable for you. Some clinics may only offer booster vaccines, or may only be open to adults aged 18 and over.

If you are unable to find a suitable clinic at your chosen venue, please try to pre-booking an appointment by visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or calling 0344 2573 961.

If you plan to attend a walk-in clinic, please bring your NHS number and ID with proof of your age (for example, driving licence or passport).

Please note:

  • Opening hours of walk-in sessions depend on the number of people turning up on the day and on vaccine supply.
  • People without booked appointments will be vaccinated on a first come, first served basis and the walk-in clinic will close once all vaccinations available for the day have been administered.
  • Capacity for walk-ins is limited on some days, and you may need to wait to be vaccinated, or you may be unable to get your vaccine on your chosen day.

Please dress appropriately for the weather. You may also wish to bring a drink and something to sit on if you feel you may need it.

To minimise wait times and avoid disappointment, we recommend booking in advance if you are able. You can book online via the NHS website, or call 0344 2573 961.
