The clinic is one of several drop-in sites open in the county this week offering people the chance to get their first or second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine without making an appointment.

Chris Pallot, director of Northamptonshire's Covid-19 vaccination programme, said: “Getting vaccinated is the best and safest way we can protect ourselves, the people we love and those around us. This is even more important as we return to our normal everyday lives and enjoy more freedoms.

“Vaccine take up has been really good in Northamptonshire, particularly in the over-40 age group. We are now encouraging those aged between 18 and 39 to drop in for their jabs - as we don’t want pockets of people left vulnerable to Covid-19.

“We’re making it as easy and convenient as possible to get jabbed. We want to ensure people are able get on and enjoy the summer months knowing they and their family and friends are safely protected. We have several drop-in clinics available this week where you can simply pop in and get your vaccine, appointment-free.”

The Northamptonshire Covid-19 Vaccination Centre in Moulton Park offers drop-ins every day from 8am to 6.30pm.

A drop-in clinic is also at Mr Pickford's Pharmacy in Corby's Spencer Court from 10.30am to 6.45pm between today (Wednesday) and Friday (July 23).

Anyone attending has been urged to bring along their NHS number if they have one, which can be found online at nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/ Anyone unable to attend a drop-in clinic can still book an appointment at existing local vaccination sites, either online at nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccine, by calling 119 or by contacting their GP practice.
