COVID-19 vaccines available in Swaffham and Downham Market with no appointment needed

People are being encouraged to come forward for COVID-19 vaccinations at two Norfolk market town sites.

Those yet to get their jab in the Swaffham and Downham Market areas can pop into Universal Pharmacy on the Turbine Way industrial estate, Swaffham, or Willows Pharmacy, Paradise Road, Downham Market.

No appointment is required to get the jab with people just needing to turn up. Both first and second doses are available.

Ade Titiloye, Head of Operations at Universal Pharmacy Swaffham, said some stock must be used by the end of the month.

He said: “We would encourage everyone who is eligible and who has not come forward to do so now. We know that cases of COVID-19 are rising. The vaccines are safe and effective and offer the best protection against the virus. There has never been a more important time to get your vaccine, it not only protects you and your family but also your friends and those around you.”

The walk-in clinics are as follows:

Notes to Editors:

 

Second dosing intervals: given the increase in cases of the Delta variant, giving people the best possible protection from COVID-19 is vital. Evidence, based on real-world data, suggests a better immune response when doses are given at least 8 weeks apart; please wait until you have reached your 8 week point before accessing a walk-in clinic. Alternatively, patients can bring their appointment forward via the national booking system to 8 weeks if the original booking goes after this point.
