Why wait any longer to get your Covid-19 vaccination or booster?

Come along to our Vaccination Clinic at Asda, Holles Street, Grimsby on Friday 14th January 10am-4pm. You can walk in, no appointment needed so you can grab your jab while doing your shopping.

It’s been almost 2 years since the first cases of Covid-19 were discovered in England and since then, we’ve all had periods of time where Covid has kept us apart from our friends and family. Since the rollout of the vaccination programme, we’re able to do more of the things we love with the people we love and that’s why we must keep going.

“By now, most people will have seen that getting two Covid-19 vaccinations does not give us enough protection against the Omicron variant, especially if it is more than three months since the second dose. That’s why we’re urging people to come forward and get their booster” explains Dr Ekta Elston, Local GP and Medical Director of North East Lincolnshire CCG. “We also want to remind people that it’s not too late to get a first and second dose of the vaccine if they’ve not already had theirs.  A recent first or second dose will offer significant protection and help to prevent people becoming seriously unwell with covid”

The Asda clinic will be offering first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine for people aged 16 and over (there must be 8 weeks between first and second doses) and booster vaccinations for 18s and over (there must be 3 months since the second dose before a booster vaccination can be administered). If you have had Covid-19 there must be a gap of 28 days before any vaccinations can be given.

If you can’t make the vaccination clinic on Friday, there are lots of other walk-in clinics available across North East Lincolnshire which you can find on the CCG website: https://www.northeastlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk/covid-19/vaccineclinics/

Geoff Barnes, Acting Director of Public Health, North East Lincolnshire Council added: “We encourage anyone having doubts about getting the vaccination or anyone who hasn’t got around to having theirs yet to please think again and help us keep the virus at bay in North East Lincolnshire.”
