People aged 16 and 17 can now get a Covid vaccination.

The latest information on where and how people in this age group can get a walk in jab can be found on the NHS Grab a Jab website

Those aged over 17 years and 9 months can book appointments at any of our vaccination centres online here

Anita Sherwood, Oxford Health’s head of testing and immunisation, said: “The best way to be protected against Covid is to get vaccinated, and the most up to date information on where you can walk in is through the NHS Grab a Jab website.

“Oxford Health has already delivered 500,000 jabs to people across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and we are pleased that we will be welcoming younger people to our centres when they are eligible to book via the national booking system.

“GPs will be contacting young people but there’s also chances for young people to get their jabs at walk in centres.

“There’s currently walk in opportunities to get vaccinated in Aylesbury and Reading and we are working on opening up more appointments to the younger age group in all our centres soon.”

At the Broad Street Mall vaccination centre, Reading, the Trust is offering the opportunity for 16 and 17 year olds to walk in for a Pfizer 1st dose from Tuesday-Sunday next week.

Oxford Health is also currently offering jabs at the Guttmann centre in Aylesbury for people aged 16+ up until to Monday 16 August, when the centre will temporarily close for the rest of the week.
