Walk-in vaccinations available at Stoke Mandeville Stadium every day for the rest of July

Walk-in COVID vaccination clinics will continue to operate at Stoke Mandeville Stadium every day throughout the rest of July.

Oxford Health has extended the opportunity to walk into the Guttmann Centre for a jab until the end of this month (Saturday, 31 July).

The centre, run by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, has the capacity to vaccinate up to 600 people a day and welcomes people throughout the day who require Pfizer first and second doses (8 weeks minimum after first dose). The doors are open from 9.30am-7.00pm every day.

Tehmeena Ajmal, Oxford Health’s Covid Operations Director, said: “The walk-in opportunity has proved popular so we are running it until the end of the month – this is an easy way to get your first or second dose.

“Whoever you are, if you are aged 18 or older and you haven’t had your covid jab yet – make today the day that you make this happen.

“It is just as vital to get your jab now as it was on day one.

“I also want to pay tribute to all the people who have worked so hard over many months to operate our vaccinations centres. Thanks to their efforts Oxford Health has administered more than 446,000 doses which contributes greatly to the national programme to get as many people as possible protected.”

Where is the centre?

What do I need to do?

Please wear clothing that gives easy access to your non-dominant arm.

It would be helpful if you could tell staff your NHS number. If you don’t know it you can find your NHS number online by using the Find your NHS number service or by logging on to the NHS App (you’ll need to register if you have not used it before). Having your NHS number will speed up the process, but it is not essential.
