The Covid vaccination hub at King’s Lynn is to remain open normal hours during the summer.

After a busy few months delivering the spring booster campaign, some of Norfolk and Waveney’s large-scale vaccination sites will be reducing opening hours next month.

However, the hub at Lynn’s Shakespeare Barn at the Arts Centre in King Street is one of three which will keep to normal opening hours – opening seven days a week, 8.30am to 4pm and some late evenings.

There is still opportunity for Norfolk and Waveney residents, including children from the age of five, to get their first, second or third primary dose (if they were immunosuppressed at the time they had these).

Also, people 75 and older, and those aged 12 years and older who are severely immunosuppressed, are encouraged to come forward for their booster if they haven’t already done so.

Dr David Vickers, medical director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, said: “Vaccines remain our best line of defence against coronavirus, and we thank those who have already had their COVID-19 vaccination.

“We’ve currently administered more than 1.4 million doses of the vaccine as part of the largest and most successful vaccination programme in NHS history, however it’s not too late for anyone who’s eligible to be vaccinated – you can simply walk-in or book an appointment online via the National Booking Service or by ringing 119 free of charge.”
