Tehmeena Ajmal, COVID operations director for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: ‘We’re really pleased to be bringing the Health on the Move bus back to Buckinghamshire and to bring the vaccination programme closer to our communities.
We would urge anyone in the areas being visited by the bus who still needs a jab to please make the most of this opportunity.
Vaccinations are still the surest way back to a more normal way of life and we want to make getting one as easy as possible for you.‘
Dr Raj Bajwa, GP and Chair of NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group said: ‘This project is a great example of health and local authority partners working together to support the health of our local communities.
If you still need a vaccine, please do visit the Health on the Move bus if it comes to your area.
The more people who have their vaccine dose, the safer all of us and those around us will be – particularly with cases rising again and more restrictions lifting this week.‘
Anyone who has not yet had a vaccination and cannot, or are not eligible to, attend any of the mobile drop-in clinics can instead book an appointment at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or call 119 for free.
