Walk-in COVID jabs for over 16s now available at Banbury Town Hall
Date: 05 January 2022
The pop-up vaccination clinic at Banbury Town Hall is now open for walk-in jabs if you are aged 16 or over. You don’t need an appointment, just turn up anytime from 10am till 5pm every day till Sunday 9 January. Additional clinic opening hours will depend on demand for vaccinations – please check the Grab a Jab website for the latest opening hours information before going to the clinic.
The clinic is offering the Pfizer vaccine for 1st, 2nd and booster doses to anyone who is eligible (see Grab a Jab website for details). No NHS number or ID is required but it does speed things up if you do have your NHS number with you.
Second COVID-19 vaccinations need to be done at least eight weeks after a first dose and should be the same vaccine type. Booster vaccinations are given three months after your second dose of vaccine. If you have tested positive for COVID-19, aged over 18 then you need to wait four weeks (28 days) from your positive test or the start of symptoms before you can get any vaccination. If you are aged 16 or 17 and have tested positive for COVID-19 then you need to wait twelve weeks (84 days) from your positive test or the start of symptoms before you can get any vaccination.
People aged 18+ can also use the National Booking Service to book a vaccination slot and there are plenty of appointments across a number of local sites this week.
Since the Prime Minister’s announcement on 12 December, the NHS in Oxfordshire has expanded its capacity for vaccinations at GP-led local vaccination sites, the large vaccination centre run by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and many community pharmacies. Nearly 150,000 boosters jabs have been done in the county so far.
