  • Wednesday 17th Nov 9am - 5pm

Speaking of the launch, Leader of the Council Cllr David Wright said: “I’m delighted that we are able to support the booster vaccine programme in this way and offer the people of North Warwickshire most at risk from COVID-19 a convenient way to access their much-needed booster vaccination.

“Our priority throughout the pandemic has always been to support those most vulnerable and we are happy to offer our venue to NHS partners to provide another clinic for local residents, so it is as easy as possible to get these vital vaccinations.”

A coronavirus (COVID-19) booster vaccine dose helps improve the protection from the first 2 doses of the vaccine. It helps give longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19.

Immunity from the 1st and 2nd doses of Covid-19 vaccines declines over time and it’s crucial to have a booster six months after your 2nd dose to ensure maximum protection. If it’s been six months since your 2nd dose, you are eligible for a booster. If you are eligible for your booster you can book your vaccine at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/, call NHS 119 or visit a clinic with walk-in appointments.
