The walk-in vaccination clinics at the Guttmann Centre in Stoke Mandeville Stadium have been extended, instead of running until the end of July 2021 they will now continue until Monday 16th August 2021.
This means anyone who needs a first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine (people aged 18+) can simply turn up to the centre without booking.
Vaccines are available every day from 9.30am to 7.00pm. Please just make sure you leave 8 weeks between your first and second doses.
The centre has the capacity to vaccinate up to 600 people a day and the walk-ins mean it is incredibly easy to protect yourself, your family and those around you from COVID-19.
Tehmeena Ajmal, Covid Operations Director at Oxford Health, said: ‘If you haven’t had your first dose yet, or you are due for your second, then please come to the Guttman. You can turn up when it suits you – it has never been easier!
If anyone is unsure about getting their jab, please come and speak to our staff who can reassure anyone who is nervous, and are very experienced with this vaccine.‘
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.
