Blandford Hospital offering weekend COVID-19 vaccination clinics

16th June 2022

Timings for COVID-19 spring booster jabs at a new ‘pop-up’ vaccination centre in Blandford Hospital’s Outpatients Department have now been finalised and can be booked on the NHS National Booking Site and walk-ins are also available.

Appointments are available for vaccinations on Saturdays and Sundays, from 9.30am – 4.30pm from now on.

Saturdays are open to over-75s and 18+ immunosuppressed while Sundays are open to over-75s and 12+ immunosuppressed. There will also be a children’s 5-11 clinic running on Saturdays.   

Jane Parkinson, Vaccination Programme Manager at Dorset HealthCare, said:

“We are delighted to be opening this pop-up vaccination centre in Blandford for the most vulnerable to receive their spring booster. This will give local people the opportunity to access a clinic nearer to their home, so they can receive this life-saving jab.

“Booking appointments is a straightforward online process through the National Booking System and our experienced, friendly team will look forward to greeting you.” 

The vaccination centre will be based in the Outpatients Clinic and can be accessed via the side entrance of the hospital. A small car park is available at the site.

A host of other local clinics have been opened recently to offer people a greater choice of when and where to get their jabs.

More information on where you can get your jab, whichever dose you need, is available on the Dorset HealthCare vaccination service web page.
