University of Reading staff and students, including international students, are being invited to receive their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccination without an appointment at several ‘pop-up’ centres from this weekend.
The NHS Health on the Move COVID-19 vaccination bus will be visiting the following locations from Saturday (17 July) to offer first and second doses of the vaccine:
- Asda car park, Chalfont Way, Lower Earley RG6 5TT– Saturday 17 July (11:00-16:00), Sunday 18 July (11:00-16:00) and Monday 19 July (13:00-18:00)
- Norreys Church, Norreys Avenue, Wokingham RG40 1UU – Tuesday 20 July (13:00-18:00) and Wednesday 21 July (13:00-18:00)
Additionally, Reading Borough Council will have a walk-in vaccine clinic operating at:
- Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading RG1 2LU – Saturday 17 July and Sunday 18 July, 9:30-17:30 both days.
Vaccines will be offered to all over-18s on a first come, first served basis. You do not need an appointment, an NHS number or to be registered with a GP, but it is asked that people bring proof of age.
Those hoping to receive a second dose of the Pfizer must have had it as their first vaccination, and have allowed an eight week gap since receiving their first dose. They should also bring their vaccine card with them.
Please note: Only 120 doses of the vaccine will be available each day at the Wokingham and Lower Earley sites, so you are encouraged to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
