‘Grab a jab’ at The Leys Health Centre in Oxford, Saturday 3 July
Date: 02 July 2021
This weekend, anyone aged 18 or over can receive a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the walk-in clinic in The Leys Health Centre in Dunnock Way, OX4 7EX.
No appointment is necessary and no proof of identity is required to allow people to ‘grab a jab.’ A further walk-in clinic will be available in Oxford the following weekend (Saturday 10 July).
This follows the success of two walk-in clinics in Oxford last weekend (26/27 June) when over 800 COVID-19 first dose vaccinations were delivered to people aged 18 or over.
When and where are the clinics being held:
- On Saturday 3 July, there will be a walk-in clinic at the Leys Health Centre on Dunnock Way (9am to 1.30pm).
- Saturday 10 July at East Oxford Health Centre, Manzil Way, Cowley, OX4 1GE (9am to 5pm).
Jo Cogswell, Director of Transformation at Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said:
“I would urge anyone who has not yet had their first dose of the vaccine to attend the walk-in clinic at The Leys Health Centre in Blackbird Leys this Saturday to keep themselves and their family safe.”
Jo added: “The clinic is only a short bus ride from Oxford city centre offering flexibility for people out shopping or who want to bring a friend to grab a jab to protect themselves from the virus.”
People who attend a walk-in clinic for their first dose will have their vaccination record updated online and will then be able to book in their second dose appointment using the national booking system.
- An ad van will be touring the streets of Oxford this Saturday (3 July) to promote the Covid-19 walk-in clinic at The Leys Health Centre – so if you see the ad van take a photo and tweet us at: OxonCCG
- All adults can book at one of the 1,600 vaccination centre, pharmacy or general practice sites across the country that are available through the national booking service. People are encouraged to check this on a regular basis to see if they can book one closer to their home, and to keep trying as slots become available daily that will be more convenient for them.
- Text invitations appear as an alert from ‘NHSvaccine’ and include a web link to the NHS websiteto reserve an appointment.
- People who cannot go online can call the service on 119 instead to book their jab.
- People aged 39 and under who are eligible and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in line with updated JCVI guidance.
