Sheffield walk-in vaccination clinic extends opening hours
A Sheffield walk-in vaccination clinic has extended its opening hours to enable more people to get the jab as soon as possible.
The walk-in clinic at Darnall Primary Care Centre, which administers the Pfizer vaccine, will now be open between 7 and 9pm on weekdays and between 9am and 4.30pm on weekends.
People can turn up to get either their first or second dose of the vaccine without an appointment.
The centre is open to anybody over the age of 18 who wants their jab.
This comes as lockdown restriction easing was delayed for an extra four weeks after the initially planned ‘freedom day’ of June 21, to allow more people to be vaccinated before the rules are relaxed completely.
The decision to delay came amid concerns over the spread of the newer Delta variant of Covid, which has been behind spikes in new cases of the virus in recent weeks and prompted concerns around the pressure on NHS resources.
