Anyone aged over 18 who is yet to have their first dose of vaccine will be able to attend a walk-in clinic in the district this weekend.

This walk-in session is for a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine for anyone over who has not yet had a first dose, and doesn’t have an appointment booked for one.

NHS officials say it will be first come, first served basis.

Anyone who attends must be able to attend Tennants for their second dose on Saturday, August 28.

They will be given their second dose appointment time when they get their first dose.

An NHS spokesperson said: “With it being a walk in clinic, there is the possibility of a queue.

“Please be patient with the team who will be working hard to get everyone through.”
