Grab a Jab this weekend

PEOPLE are being invited to ‘Grab A Jab’ this weekend as NHS South West opens a record number of walk-in jabs sites.

NHS regional medical director Dr Michael Marsh said there is now no excuse for people over 18 not to get their first dose.

Anyone over 18 will be able to walk in and get their vaccination at convenient sites while going about their usual weekend business – without needing to book a time in advance.

The three nearest sites for people in Sedgemoor are:

Burnham-on-Sea Rugby Football Club – Day Lewis Pharmacy, Stoddens Road, Burnham-on-sea, TA8 2BS

June 26, 5pm-7pm

June 27, 3pm-5pm

Over 18s first jab

Taunton Racecourse, Orchard Portman, Somerset, TA3 7BL

June 25-28, 8am-8pm

Over 40s second jab

Winchester Farm, Draycott Road, Cheddar Somerset, BS27 3RP

June 26, 9am-4pm

Over 18s first jab

The move comes as the NHS continues the final push to vaccinate everyone, following the watershed moment last Friday when every adult in the country became eligible for the jab.

Dr Marsh said: “It is just as important to get vaccinated now as it was on day one of the programme, and it has never been easier. We urge everyone who has not yet had their first dose to find the most convenient walk-in for them this weekend, because the more people who get the life-saving jab, the safer it is for everyone.”
