The Sunday walk-in sessions are from 9am to 12.30pm and 1pm until 4.30pm for all those eligible for a Covid jab.

Those aged 12-17 can get a first or second dose – it must be 12 weeks after their first or 12 weeks after having covid to be eligible for a second jab.

For adults aged 18 plus to be eligible for a booster, it must be three months after their second vaccine.
