Visitors to the Heckington Show this weekend will be able to get their covid vaccination from a team of NHS vaccinators who will be on-site Saturday and Sunday.

The team will be there between 9am and 6pm on Saturday and 9am and 5pm on Sunday, and will be offering first, second and booster vaccinations to anyone aged 16 or over. Five to 11-year-olds and 12-15 year-olds including 12-15 year-olds who are currently immunosuppressed, can also receive a vaccine.

Given the significant uplift in covid infections around the country, including in Lincolnshire, people are being urged to ensure they are fully vaccinated.
