Nearly every drop-in COVID vaccination clinic in Northamptonshire is now open for people aged 16 and 17 to get their first jab and protect themselves against coronavirus.

Drop-in sessions for 16 and 17-year-olds are being held at several locations across the county over the coming days – including in Corby, Kettering, Northampton, Wellingborough and south Northamptonshire – for those who don’t already have an appointment booked via their GP.

Alongside these drop-in sessions, a number of GP practices around Northamptonshire are contacting their patients in the 16 and 17 age group with details of how they can book a vaccine appointment.

Chris Pallot, director of Northamptonshire’s Covid-19 vaccination programme, said: “Our local vaccination services have been working really hard to be ready to offer the Covid vaccine to 16 and 17-year-olds over the last couple of weeks, and I’m pleased to be able to say that nearly every drop-in is now able to welcome this age group for their jabs.

“Getting vaccinated isn’t just about protecting ourselves and our loved-ones from coronavirus – it’s also a hugely important step back towards a normal life for all of us and the freedoms we all enjoyed before the pandemic.

“And if you’re aged 18 and over and haven’t yet had your vaccine, it’s certainly not too late – your offer of a jab remains open and you can book online via the NHS website, call 119 or pop along to any of our local drop-in sessions.”

All drop-in sessions for people aged 16 above are also offering second vaccine doses to anyone who had their first jab at least eight weeks previously.

Second doses must be of the same vaccine type as the first, and people should check availability, opening hours and eligibility before visiting a drop-in clinic.
