Large-scale vaccination centres open their doors over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend

by Sarah Turner | May 24, 2022

Our large-scale Covid vaccination centres across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Waveney will be closed on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June. However, the following sites will be open for walk-ins and booked appointments on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June between 8.30 am – 4.00 pm:

  • Queensgate - Peterborough
  • Grafton Centre - Cambridge
  • City Hall - Norwich
  • Shakespeare Barn - King’s Lynn

Normal opening hours will resume at all our sites on Monday 6th June, other than at Chesterton Indoor Bowls Club in Cambridge where from 6th June to 15th July 2022, we will temporarily be delivering vaccinations from the Vaccinators on Tour’s mobile vaccination bus whilst exams are held in the centre followed by a period of building work. During this time, Thursday evening sessions at Chesterton from 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm will temporarily cease and be re-introduced on Thursday 21st July.

Those recently eligible for vaccines include:

  • People 75 and older, and those aged 12 years and older who are severely immunosuppressed, who are eligible for a top-up booster appointment six months after their last dose as part of the national Spring Booster programme. 
  • Children aged 5-11 not in at-risk groups who are eligible for their first Covid vaccine with a second dose available 12 weeks’ later.

Dr David Vickers, Medical Director, Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, said:

“We know vaccines give significant protection against severe illness from Covid-19, so I strongly urge anyone who’s eligible to come forward.

“Our vaccination teams continue to do an amazing job delivering the largest vaccination programme in NHS history and we’d like to thank our dedicated staff and volunteers for working over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend to ensure vaccination centres in these four key locations remain open.

“If you haven’t yet had your first, second or (if you were immunosuppressed at the time you had these) third dose of the vaccine, or any other booster, it’s never too late - you can simply walk-in or book an appointment online via the National Booking Service or by ringing 119 (free of charge).”

Howard Martin, Director of Population Health Management and Health Inequalities at NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said:

“We thank those who have already come forward and had their vaccination. There is still time to get your COVID-19 vaccination either by booking an appointment or just simply turning up to one of our sites. Children from the age of five can get their vaccination so for more information visit the national site: Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination - NHS ( or

“Our vaccination teams continue to do an amazing job delivering the vaccination programme, and we hope that more young people and their families will take advantage of the ability to now attend any of our large-scale vaccination centres as a walk-in to keep up the momentum of our programme.”


Editors’ notes:

Those who have recently recovered from Covid should still come forward for their vaccination as having had the virus does not give the same levels of protection. Anyone over 18 who has had Covid will need to wait four weeks before having any dose of the vaccine, or 12 weeks for those aged 5 to 17.

Which people aged 12 and over are in the immunosuppressed category?

People aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed include those who have had or have:

  • A blood cancer (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
  • A weakened immune system due to a treatment (such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
  • An organ or bone marrow transplant
  • A condition that means you have a very high risk of getting infections
  • A condition or treatment your specialist advises makes you eligible for an additional dose

Notes on vaccinations for 5-11-year-olds

All 5-11-year-olds will be offered two 10 microgram doses of the Pfizer vaccine; a third of the amount used for adult vaccinations.

Parents and guardians are asked to attend the vaccination centre with their children and are asked to read the patient information available.

An animation is also available to help children know what to expect when they visit our vaccination centres.
