A number of walk-in centres are to be in action this weekend where patients can receive their vaccine without an appointment.

Mrs Ansell said, “Each jab is weakening the link between infections, hospitalisations and deaths.

“To help ensure as many people have access, first doses are being offered without appointment.”

Any adult looking to get their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine can get their jab today (July 2) from 10am-2.30pm and 3.30pm-8.00pm near the entrance of Eastbourne Pier, Grand Parade.

A walk-in centre is also open at The Beacon tomorrow (July 3) between 8.30am-3.00pm for all adults hoping to get either their first or second dose – as long as it has been at least eight weeks since the patient’s first Pfizer jab.

Adults can also receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Sunday, July 4, between 10am-1pm at Hampden Park Surgery, Brodrick Close.

Mrs Ansell added, “Remember you can still come forward and book through your GP hub or through the national booking centre online or by calling 119.

“Please do come forward for your second dose which is essential to protect yourself and others.”
