1st and 2nd Dose AstraZeneca Drop-Ins at Luton Mosque this Sunday

Date: 17/06/2021 | Category: CCG News

NHS Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (BLMK CCG) is offering even more opportunities to get your first and second dose of AstraZeneca by opening up a one-day clinic at The Central Mosque, 2-12 Westbourne Rd, Luton LU4 8JD on Sunday 20 June.

This session follows the weekend in April when three sites in Luton opened up walk-in options for local people to get vaccinated.

If you are aged over 40 and either haven’t had your first vaccine or are now due to have your second vaccine (8 weeks or more since your first appointment), you can just turn up at The Central Mosque in Luton between 11am and 5.30pm. If you are coming for your second vaccination, please bring your card from your first appointment. And remember you only need to turn up, there is no booking required

Dr Sarah Whiteman, Chair of BLMK CCG encouraged everyone to take advantage of this “We are keen to get as many people as possible vaccinated, and whilst over the region we have already vaccinated over 500,000 residents, with a first vaccination, there are still more who need to come forward. It is also very important to make sure that you have your second vaccine as the protection offered gives stronger and longer lasting protection after two doses”.

In addition to Sunday’s pop up clinic at The Central Mosque, if you are under 40 you can also drop in to the Redgrave Centre in Luton for your Pfizer vaccine. The Children and Young People’s Centre at 27 Redgrave Gardens, LU3 3Q is open from 9am – 7pm.  Further details of other drop in sites can be found at www.blmkccg.nhs.uk/drop-in.

Other vaccination options include community pharmacy sites and large vaccination centres, which can be booked via the National Booking Service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or calling 119 (between 7am and 11pm each day).
