A 'NO APPOINTMENT' Covid vaccine clinic is being rolled out across Cheshire West and Chester.

The roving clinic will commence operations in the borough from Monday, June 7, with the first clinic being held at Northwich Memorial Court.

No prior appointment will be necessary but initially the roving clinics will deliver the Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine and will therefore only be suitable for persons aged 40 and over.

Each clinic will be open from 10am to 4pm each day or for as long as vaccine supplies last.

NHS Cheshire’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme has been updated to reflect Phase 2 of the vaccination roll-out, specifically focusing on the introduction of a community outreach programme which will includes ‘pop up’ vaccination clinics and a roving unit (mobile “bus”).

The purpose of the offer is to target ‘hard to reach’ communities and areas with comparatively low vaccine take-up.

The vaccination clinics will be operated by the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Trust. The deployment of the clinics will be intelligence-led and determined on a week-by-week basis by Council officers and health colleagues.

Currently vaccinations are only available at the roving clinics for the over 40s as the Astra Zeneca vaccine is being used, however it is hoped that a vaccine offer will soon be available to anyone aged over 18.

Those receiving their first vaccine at the clinic will receive details of their second dose appointment at that time. Those attending for vaccination will be required to produce their:

• NHS Number

• Date of birth

• Address

• Email and phone number

The programme of clinics for week beginning 7th June will be:

• Monday 7th Northwich Memorial Court, Northwich

• Tuesday 8th 71 St Anne’s Street, Chester

• Wednesday 9th Plas Dinas, Blacon Point Road, Chester

• Thursday 10th Church Parade, Westminster, Ellesmere Port

• Friday 11th Lache Community Centre, Hawthorn Road, Lache, Chester
