In addition to vaccination sessions available at the PRSA Mass Vaccination Centre, Boston (see list below for further details), pop-up vaccination sessions are still available at a range of locations (see list below).

Everyone aged five and over can get two doses of the covid vaccination, with people aged 16 and over able to have a booster vaccination too.

Karen Hewinson, Head of Clinical Services, NHS Lincolnshire ICB, said: “We continue to see decent numbers of people coming forwards for their covid vaccinations and, not surprisingly now that it’s the school holidays, we’ve been particularly pleased to see so many young people coming for their vaccinations.

“Whilst we’re busy behind the scenes planning for the forthcoming autumn booster campaign, we’re continuing to offer 1st, 2nd and booster doses and maintaining the availability of pop-up vaccination sessions that don’t require an appointment, in an effort to make getting vaccinated as easy as possible.”

Getting vaccinated remains the best way to maximise protection against covid and avoid serious illness and/or hospitalisation.

Karen added: “Vaccination still offers effective protection against covid, and so completing your vaccination course is vital. In addition, we can all take some simple steps like wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, meeting outdoors where possible, opening windows to let fresh air in, and washing hands properly – with soap and water – for at least 20 seconds.”

Covid vaccinations are available at the pop-up walk-in sessions listed below and at www.lincolnshire.icb.nhs.uk/grabajab or by booking an appointment online using the National Booking System or by calling 119.
