Make vaccination one of your New Year plans!

Health bosses are calling on the people of Doncaster to make Covid vaccinations one of their New Year resolutions to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Hundreds of extra slots have been made available this month for people to either get their boosters or first and second Covid vaccinations at walk-in clinics across the borough.

Vaccinators are waiting to offer jabs at a variety of centres including the Lakeside Shopping Village, the Frenchgate Centre, Dearne Valley Leisure Centre and at practices in Askern, Intake and the town centre.

Local GP and Chair of the CCG Dr David Crichton said: “We’ve had a concerted effort in the run-up to Christmas with thousands of people taking up the offer of the Covid vaccines. I was pleased to personally vaccinate people who were coming forward for first, second and booster doses, which is fantastic. However, the New Year is traditionally a quieter time when people reflect on what they might like to do to help improve their lives and their health, so we’re encouraging people to think about one of those choices being to boost their immunity against viruses including Covid.

“There are hundreds of appointments available by booking though the NHS National Booking Service or by visiting one of our walk-in clinics, so please take up the offer today – don’t delay!”

Venues and opening times can be found on the CCG website here: Get vaccinated at one of our drop-in clinics – Doncaster CCG or by calling 119 or booking online: Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
