TWO more walk-in Covid vaccination clinics have been announced for Hartlepool.

The clinics - for which appointments are not needed - will take place on Saturday (October 16) from 10am to 6pm at Mill House Leisure Centre car park and on Saturday, October 23 from 10am to 6pm at Middleton Grange Shopping Centre car park - next to TJ Hughes.

First and second doses of both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines will be available.

Those planning to attend for a second dose of a vaccine are reminded that it must be at least eight weeks since they received the same first dose.

Booster jabs will also be available - 182 days or six months after second dose.

Both clinics are open to anyone 16 or over, and young people in particular are encouraged to get their jabs.

Medical staff will be on hand to answer any questions.

Craig Blundred, Hartlepool Borough Council’s Director of Public Health, said: “It is very important to get both doses as full vaccination is the best way for people to protect themselves and those around them from Covid.

“The vast majority of cases we are currently seeing are in younger age groups who are now eligible for vaccination and the fact we are not seeing as many in older groups who have had the vaccine is testament to the success of the rollout.”
