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.
