Walk-in COVID vaccine clinic at Alfred Bean Hospital this month

If you know anyone that still needs to get their COVID-19 vaccines or boosters, the Health and Wellbeing Bus COVID-19 Vaccination Service is out on the road across the East Riding and Hull throughout the summer.

If you pop along to the vaccination bus this August, the local NHS team are running some special sessions for anyone aged 12+ for first, second or booster jabs, including the Spring Booster (if eligible).

Vaccine bus dates and locations are updated each week on the local vaccination website: https://vaccinatehullandeastriding.co.uk/ 

Alongside the vaccine bus, City Health Care Partnership (CHCP) are also running a number of extra walk-in clinics for younger age groups across the East Riding and in Hull, including clinics for those aged 5 to 11 (and for anyone aged 12 and in Year 7 who may have missed their in-school vaccinations at the start of the year) during the summer holidays on behalf of the local NHS vaccine team. 

Some children will now be due for their second COVID-19 dose which should be 12 weeks after their first dose for most children. If your child still needs to get their first vaccine, it’s not too late.

Public health continue to encourage parents and carers to get their children vaccinated to give them long-lasting protection against serious complications of infection to the virus – including any future waves due to new variants. Children will also gain some protection from any mild symptoms.

August 2022 dates include:

Beverley Health Centre (HU17 7BZ) – 10am to 4pm: 
Saturday 6 August, Saturday 25 August and Wednesday 31 August (walk-in clinics for children aged 5-11 or 12 and in Year 7) 

Alfred Bean Hospital, Driffield (YO25 5JR) – 10am to 4pm: 
Friday 19 August (walk-in clinics for children aged 5-11 or 12 and in Year 7)

Friday 26 August (walk-in clinics for children aged 5-11 or 12 and in Year 7)

Bridlington Hospital (Community services) (YO16 4QP) – 10am to 4pm: 
Monday 8 August (walk-in clinics for children aged 5-11 or 12 and in Year 7)

As well as being listed on the NHS website, these dates are also updated on the local vaccination website: https://vaccinatehullandeastriding.co.uk/

There is no need to book for a walk-in or the bus, so why not drop in while you are out with the family, shopping or meeting a friend? Please note, there is a limited supply of vaccines each day.
