City Hall Covid-19 vaccination centre closed on Saturday 30th July due to Norwich Pride

by Sarah Turner | Jul 25, 2022

Our large-scale Covid vaccination centre at City Hall, St Peters Street, Norwich NR2 1NH will be closed on Saturday 30th July as the city gears up for the 14th Norwich Pride

The centre will be open as normal during the rest of the week for both walk-ins and booked appointments to enable all those eligible to access their vital vaccination or booster jabs.

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

“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.”

End

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.
