Covid-19 booster walk-in centres Bristol: Where to get a jab near me

There are plenty of clinics open as the drive to offer a booster jab to everyone by the New Year continues

There are plenty of spots around Bristol to ‘grab a jab’ over the next few days as the drive to offer everyone a booster dose before January 1 continues.

Just before Christmas Anne Morris, chief nurse of the region’s vaccination programme, told BristolWorld there had been a lapse in demand for booster jabs before Christmas, despite efforts to ramp up capacity.

She urged residents not to put off their booster until the New Year if they are eligible, adding: “The third dose really does offer so much protection”.

She also reassured people coming forward for their first jab: “It’s never too late. Some people are keen, some people take time to decide.

“There will be no judgement on our part, we’re just delighted to see you come forward.”

Vaccinations resumed on December 27 and there are plenty of walk-in clinics open over the next few days offering first, second and booster jabs.

You can also book your vaccine at a number of sites across the city such as Southmead Hospital by clicking here: https://bnssghealthiertogether.org.uk/book-your-vaccine/covid/
