A drop-in clinic is opening at Stoke Mandeville stadium this weekend for eligible members of the public to get their first or second Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccine without a pre-booked appointment.
The drop-in clinics will be open on:
- Friday 4 June – 10am to 12:30pm and 2:30pm to 5pm
- Saturday 5 June – 9:30am to 1pm
Regardless of whether you are a permanent Buckinghamshire resident or not, anyone aged over 40 who has not yet had their first vaccine or those over 18 who need their second jab (a minimum of 4 weeks after their first) is eligible to attend. All you need is your name, date of birth and NHS number. You can find your NHS number online.
Organisers are encouraging fundraisers to take part in their own challenges around the number 100, between 30 April and 3 May – the weekend on which Captain Tom would have celebrated his 101st birthday.

Residents aged 50 years old or over, those in a recognised clinical ‘at risk’ group and all frontline health and social care workers in Buckinghamshire are being urged to come forward to arrange their COVID vaccination as soon as possible if they have not already done so.
