First dose Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination clinic to be held in Melton
23rd June 2021 | By Liz McCann | Posted in
Residents in Melton that are yet to have their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine are being invited to attend a new drop-in vaccination clinic this weekend.
The three-day clinic will be open daily from Friday 25 June until Sunday 27 June 2021 at the Melton Sports Village, Burton Road, Melton Mowbray, LE13 1DR. Eligible local residents aged 18 and over can drop-in to be vaccinated from 12pm until 9pm every day and do not need to book in advance.
There will be a team available onsite throughout the clinic who are able to provide information about the vaccine, to answer questions and offer general support if anyone is unsure about the vaccination process.
Caroline Trevithick, Executive Director of Nursing, Quality and Performance at the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland CCGs, said: “As confirmed cases of coronavirus continue to rise in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) we urge anyone that is yet to have their first dose of the vaccine to come along at a time that is convenient for them to be vaccinated. You don’t need to book an appointment in advance and our team will be on hand to help answer any questions.
“The vaccine is the best defence we have against the Covid-19 virus and by getting vaccinated you will not only protect yourself, but you’ll be helping us to build resilience which in turn will help to reduce the spread of the virus in our local communities.”
