Council Leader gets Covid booster at Witney walk-in centre
The Leader of West Oxfordshire District Council, Michele Mead has joined 379 people at the latest Covid vaccination walk-in centre in Witney for her Covid booster.
The centre, located at 3 Welch Way will welcome both over and under 18s at different times through to Sunday 5 December. Opening times will be from 9.30am until 7pm daily.
Leader of West Oxfordshire District Council Councillor Michele Mead said “It’s important for residents to remember to get their Covid vaccination when they are eligible. With Covid cases on the rise nationally we need to remember that this simple jab will save people’s lives.
“The walk-in centre means it’s quick and convenient to get vaccinated; protecting the West Oxfordshire community, our NHS and the people you love.”
The centre will operate as follows:
Over 40 boosters only.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Under 18 first and second doses, plus over 18s first/second doses and boosters.
No appointment is necessary. People may be asked to show proof of age
The drop-centre is the result of partnership working between Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and West Oxfordshire District Council who set up a similar vaccination pop-up for adults in the same location earlier this year.
