Britain’s oldest hospital is to play its part in the national vaccine roll-out by providing Covid boosters for patients and local residents.
Earlier this year, thousands of people visited St Bartholomew’s Hospital to get their first or second Covid-19 vaccine, and there is now the opportunity to get an all-important third dose to guard against the Omicron variant.
The clinic will be open between 9am and 4pm on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 December, with more dates to be announced soon.
This is a walk-in service for people aged 18 and over. No booking is required.
Vaccines are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
At least three months must have elapsed since your second dose in order to receive a booster.
First and second doses of the vaccine will also be available.
Visitors must have to hand their NHS number and know the date of their previous vaccines, if applicable.
All vaccines administered at St Bartholomew’s will be Pfizer.
Vaccines will be given in clinic one on the ground floor of the hospital, opposite the Barts Guild shop.
The clinic is a few moments from the hospital’s main entrance on King Edward Street and will be signposted on the day.
More information on vaccines can be found on the Barts Health website.
