by Karen Mason | Jun 23, 2021

Matthew Winn, Chief Executive, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, which runs the large scale vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough said:

“People aged 40 and over and those who are clinically vulnerable can now access their second Astra Zeneca vaccination dose at walk-in clinics at seven of our vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. 

“Appointments for people in these priority groups can be brought forward from 12 weeks after their first vaccination, to 8 weeks, ensuring they will have the strongest possible protection at the earliest opportunity.”

Walk-in AstraZeneca clinics are available at the following vaccination centres daily from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm from Thursday 24 June to Sunday 4 July:

  • City Care Centre,  Thorpe Road, Peterborough, PE3 6DB

  • The Eatons Community Centre, The Maltings, Eaton Socon, St. Neots PE19 8ES

From Monday 28 June 2021 to Sunday 4 July, evening walk-in clinics for AstraZeneca will also be available at the following venues between 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm:

  • Mondays:  Horsefair: Shopping Centre, Wisbech

Commenting on the importance of second doses, Dr Gary Howsam, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Chair and local GP said:

"Millions of people are now benefiting from protection from the virus and this has contributed to dramatic falls in infections, hospitalisations and deaths across the country.

“Vaccines are extremely safe and effective and I’d encourage anyone who is eligible, to drop in to one of our walk-in clinics for their AstraZeneca second dose and join the millions of people who have already had theirs.

“For people who would rather book an appointment, they can do so via the nhs.uk/covid-vaccination website, where people who have an existing appointment at 12 weeks can check availability first, before cancelling and rescheduling their second appointment on an earlier date.”
