Covid-19 booster jab Bristol: All the city walk-in clinics where you can get one

There are four locations around Bristol where you can receive a booster jab

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said everyone aged over 18 in England will be offered booster jabs from this week, in an announcement aired on television on Sunday night.

It comes amid fears of a rise in Covid cases, particularly those with the Omicron variant.

Mr Johnson has set a new target to give boosters to all adults who want one by the end of the month.

The PM said extra vaccine sites and mobile units would be set up across England, and opening hours extended.

He said: “At this point our scientists cannot say that Omicron is less severe.

“And even if that proved to be true, we already know it is so much more transmissible that a wave of Omicron through a population that was not boosted would risk a level of hospitalisation that could overwhelm our NHS and lead sadly to very many deaths.”

In Bristol, the vaccination programme is run by NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Healthier Together Partnership.

On its website this morning (December 13), the group still states only people aged 40 and over, or those with an underlying health condition and healthcare staff, can get a booster jab at a walk-in clinic.

Who can get a COVID-19 booster vaccine

NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Healthier Together Partnership outlines on its website who is eligible to get one of the booster vaccines at walk-in clinics.

Firstly, the booster was be at least three months after their second dose.

Those eligible:

  • people aged 40 and over
  • people who live and work in care homes

  • people aged 16 and over who are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
