Walk-in Pfizer COVID vaccinations are now available at Stoke Mandeville Stadium every day throughout the rest of July 2021.
Anyone who wants to grab a jab can simply turn up at the Guttman Centre site within the stadium, with no need to book first.
The centre, run by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, can vaccinate up to 600 people a day. It is welcoming anyone aged 18 and over who needs a Pfizer first or second dose, please ensure you leave at least eight weeks between doses.
The doors are open from 9.30am to 7.00pm every day until the end of July 2021.
Tehmeena Ajmal, Covid Operations Director at Oxford Health, said: ‘The walk-in opportunity has proved popular so we are running it until the end of the month [July 2021], 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.‘
The vaccination centre is located at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, Guttmann Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP21 9PP. Marshals will direct visitors to the parking area which is separate to other bays for the use of people using the sports facilities.
The centre is also accessible by Arriva bus service numbers 9, X30, 300 or by services operated from Aylesbury bus station to the vaccination centre.
Anyone attending the centre for vaccination is asked to wear clothing that gives easy access to your non-dominant arm and to be aware they may have to queue for a short while.
It would be helpful if anyone visiting for vaccination could also provide their NHS number. Anyone who doesn’t know their NHS number can find it online by using the ‘Find your NHS number service‘ or by logging on to the NHS App (you will need to register if you have not used it before). Having your NHS number will speed up the process, but it is not essential.
