13/01/2022 – Military personnel to support walk-in Covid-19 vaccination clinic

13 January 2022

Anyone who is eligible for a Covid-19 vaccination will be able to simply walk into a new pop-up clinic in Crewe from 18 to 22 January.

Military personnel will be supporting NHS staff at the clinic – operated by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust – with residents eligible for a first, second or booster dose encouraged to simply walk into the Municipal Buildings, Earle Street, Crewe CW1 2BH, for a Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccination at the following times:

  • Tuesday 18 January (11am to 4.30pm)
  • Wednesday 19 January (11am to 4.30pm)
  • Thursday 20 January (1pm to 6.30pm)
  • Friday 21 January (1pm to 6.30pm)
  • Saturday 22 January (10am to 3.30pm)

Clare Watson, accountable officer of NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured the support of military personnel for a five-day pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinic in Crewe. The team are able to deliver hundreds of vaccinations every day so please pop in if you’re eligible for a first, second or booster dose.

“In addition to the booster programme, we continue to see lots of people coming forward for first and second doses, which is really encouraging. It is never too late to come forward for your vaccination – whichever dose that may be.

“If you are unable to attend a walk-in clinic, you can also arrange your vaccination appointments via the National Booking Service, by calling 119 or by responding to an invitation from your local NHS service.”

Councillor Arthur Moran, vice-chair of Cheshire East Council’s adults and health committee, said: “The council actively supports these clinics as all the evidence shows getting vaccinated along with your booster is safe and the most effective way to protect yourself and others.

“Vaccination rates in Crewe are some of the lowest in Cheshire East, and these clinics are an opportunity to do the right thing to help prevent the spread of the virus.

“It’s never too late to take up the offer of getting vaccinated, so please make every effort to attend on one of the days if you can.”

Vaccination is clinically-proven to reduce your risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19 and your risk of catching or spreading Covid-19 – even if you have previously had Covid-19.
