Knaresborough’s coronavirus vaccine centre is ramping up its walk-in clinics as it prepares to host a total of 21 in August.

The programme starts tomorrow, when the centre will be open between 8am and 3pm. From Wednesday to Saturday the centre will be open between 8am and 5pm.

That will be the same all month. The centre will be open most days in the week between 8am and 5pm except for Mondays and Sundays.

While appointments are still available, the option to “grab a jab” by just turning up has made a difference for the vaccine centre.

Jason Baskind, of Homecare Pharmacy Services which runs the site, told the Stray Ferre:

“We are getting a lot coming in for the walk-in sessions. I would say on average around 100 extra people turn up without an appointment.

“By around mid September we should have given everyone over 18 who wants a jab both doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

“Shortly after that we expect to be starting the booster programme. So that would make things easier.”

As of yesterday, the Harrogate district has given out 104,995 second doses and 123,009 first doses according to government figures.
