Following the success of the Pfizer walk-in vaccination clinics in Hartcliffe last month – there are more opportunities for local residents to drop in to the @symes Community Building during June.

The clinics in Peterson Avenue, next to Morrisons – mean local people can visit without appointments and have their vaccination during a shopping trip.

They are being held in partnership with local GP surgery Hartcliffe Health Centre – and are available to anyone who has not had their first jab or for those who had their first Pfizer vaccine over eight weeks ago.

The Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire CCG says: “We’re hosting the NHS run Walk-In vaccine clinic to make it easy for the local community to have the vaccine. The Hartcliffe area does not have as many local accessible vaccination sites as some other areas in Bristol, especially for those who do not have access to transport.

“The new variant of the COVID-19 virus spreads more easily. The more people that have the COVID-19 vaccine, the sooner our community can get back to normal life…”

Walk-ins were also trialled at Boots in Imperial Park in May for an afternoon to launch the opening of the new community pharmacy vaccination site.

The new walk-in clinics are on Friday 18 and 25 June from from 1-6pm, @symes Community Building in Peterson Avenue, Hartcliffe, BS13 0BE.
