A surgery near Salisbury is opening for walk-in Covid vaccinations this week.

Avon Valley Practice are offering walk in vaccination appointments today, tomorrow and Thursday (December 21-23), between 9am and 4pm.

These are at Larkhill Medical Centre.

The practice says that anyone aged 16 and over can walk in to Larkhill Medical Centre, on Willoughby Road, until 4pm for their first, second or booster jab.

There is no need to book and "lots of free parking".

For children aged 12 to 15, they are offering only the second vaccine, which must be taken 12 weeks after the first vaccine and, if they have had Covid, at least 12 weeks after having the virus.

The surgery adds that those who have walked in today have had less than a 5-minute wait.

The website is urging people to come to them if they haven't been able to book their jab before January.

It reads: "We’re aware that some of you have booked to be vaccinated in January at other locations.

"We urge you to reconsider this decision and attend for your vaccine next week so that you have the optimal immune response going into 2022."

Salisbury's main vaccination centre in the city hall is also offering walk-in appointments today (Tuesday December 21).

This is part of the Government's drive to get every adult in England offered a booster by the end of the year.

Boris Johnson made the announcement earlier this month after concerns of a so-called "tidal wave" of the new variant Omicron.
