A one-off pop-up clinic will be offering COVID booster jabs to eligible people in Sherborne on Tuesday 21st December. The clinic will run between 2pm and 5.30pm at the Digby Hall on Hound St.

Organised by The Sherborne Area Network, anyone eligible for a booster jab is welcome and no appointments are necessary.

Please check your eligibility before arriving via the national NHS website.

Vaccinations are limited and a high demand is expected so staff are asking people to be patient as they may have to wait for their turn or be asked to attend a different session if demand is too high.

Local GP Dr Rob Childs said “We are delighted to be able to offer this walk-in session to people as getting their booster jab is vital in order to increase their protection against the virus in the coming months.

“We are expecting demand to be high so ask those attending to be respectful to everyone involved in the clinic, which will deliver jabs on a first come first served basis.

“Anyone who is unable to attend should book their jab as soon as they are eligible or keep an eye on the press and social media for information on the next local walk-in session”.
