Walk-in COVID vaccinations are now available at Stoke Mandeville Stadium every day throughout the rest of July.
Now, 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-7pm every day.
