Still time to get jabbed as restrictions set to ease

Posted on Monday 24th January 2022

People in Staffordshire still in need of a vaccine are being reminded that it’s not too late to get protected.

Appointments for first, second and booster doses are available to book on the NHS website, and more walk-in clinics have been announced across the county for January and February.

Walk-in clinics include the Kingston Centre in Stafford, which offers appointments every day of the week except Wednesday, and local fire stations including Burton, Newcastle, Cannock and Lichfield are also hosting walk-in clinics in the coming weeks. 

Cabinet Support Member for Public Health and Integrated Care, Dr Johnny McMahon, said:

“It’s great that so many people have taken the opportunity to get a booster jab over Christmas, but we want to remind those unvaccinated that it’s never too late to get their first dose.

“It’s currently never been easier to get a vaccine in Staffordshire with people able to book appointments or attend walk-in clinics across the county. The sooner you get your first dose, the sooner you can book a second and booster to ensure you have maximum protection against Covid-19 and its side effects.”

A number of national restrictions are set to ease from Thursday 27 January. Although face coverings are still advised in crowded indoor spaces, people will no longer be required to wear one in public places. It will also no longer be necessary to show an NHS COVID Pass at venues and events.

Anybody aged over 12 years old is eligible for a Covid vaccine, and people aged 16 and over can get a booster vaccine if three months has passed since their second dose.

Vaccination walk-in clinic details can be found at www.twbstaffsandstoke.org.uk/coronavirus. People can also book a booster appointment via the NHS national booking system at www.nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine.
