Covid booster walk in: The Sheffield walk-in vaccine centres where you can get a booster jab
Six walk-in vaccination centres in Sheffield are now offering booster vaccines as the NHS ‘Grab-a-Jab’ campaign returns, making it even easier to get a top-up.
In just over six weeks since the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme began delivering boosters, more than six million people have had their vital top-up dose, including those who are clinically vulnerable and work in health and social care.
As the programme continues to protect the country against the virus, from today, those who are eligible for a booster dose can now use the NHS online walk-in finder to find the most convenient site to get their top-up without an appointment.

Dr Nikki Kanani, GP and deputy lead for the NHS covid-19 vaccination programme, said: “NHS staff are making it as easy as possible for people to get their top-up vaccination, and from today people can now go online, find their nearest site and go and get their booster without delay.
