Health on the Move van delivering COVID-19 vaccinations in Buckinghamshire from Monday 6th to Saturday 12th December 2020

| December 4, 2021

The Health on the Move van will return to Buckinghamshire from Monday 6th December 2021 and will visit High Wycombe, Chesham, Gerrards Cross and Buckingham.

Nearly 1,000 COVID-19 vaccination doses were delivered in Buckinghamshire by the Health on the Move van in November 2021 and more are on the way.

With the new Omicron variant spreading it has never been more important to get your booster vaccination if you are eligible. Please wait for the NHS to contact you before going for your jab at a walk-in site or booking an appointment.

For anyone who has still not yet had a first or second vaccine dose, the evergreen offer is still open.

Week commencing Monday 6th December 2021 the Health on the Move van will be stopping at:

  • Monday 6th December, 10.00am to 4.00pm : High Wycombe Cricket Club, London Road, HP11 1DE.
  • Wednesday 8th December, 10.00am to 3.00pm : Chesham Market, High Street, HP5 1BW.
  • Friday 10th December, 10.00am to 3.00pm : Tesco Gerrards Cross, Packhorse Road, SL9 8ER.
  • Saturday 11th December, 10.00am to 3.00pm : Chesham Market, High Street, HP5 1BW.
  • Sunday 12th December, 10.00am to 1.30pm : Buckingham Youth Centre, London Road, MK18 1AS.

Please note all dates and venues may be subject to last minute scheduling changes, so please check the Health on the Move Van page of the Buckinghamshire Clinical Commission Group website for the latest updates.

The van will be back in Buckinghamshire the following week and details of times and locations will be confirmed on the website above.

If you have not yet had your booster or your first or second vaccination and cannot, or are not eligible to, attend any of the mobile drop-in clinics, you can instead book your appointment at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or call 119 for free.

If you book using the National Booking Service but then, for whatever reason, cannot attend your appointment, please make sure you cancel or change it using the link above. This is quick and easy and will make sure more appointments are available for other people who need them.

Appointments are now available for anyone aged over 16 while healthy 12 to 15 year olds can also get vaccinated by booking online or attending a walk-in clinic without appointment.

You can find out the latest updates on walk-in vaccination clinics in Buckinghamshire which are now vaccinating young people aged 16 to 17 and 12 to 15 by visiting the Local Covid-19 vaccination updates page of the Buckinghamshire Clinical Commission Group website for the latest updates.
