The clinic, on Westborough, will be open to anyone over the age of 18 who has not yet received their first coronavirus vaccination and those needing their second jab.

First and second doses of the Moderna vaccine will be available. There is no requirement to book and patients can just turn up.

You do not need to be registered with a GP practice or have an NHS number in order to attend a drop-in clinic. If you have any questions about the vaccine, you will be able to chat on-site before you have it.
