By bringing along paper or digital versions of their red book or maternity notes (or any other relevant communication) to the vaccinating site and making themselves known to the staff at the front door they’ll be fast-tracked to the front of the queue and will not need an appointment to get vaccinated.
Carol Anderson, Chief Nurse at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG said, “Whether you need your first, second or booster dose of COVID-19 vaccination we’re making it easier for you to get vaccinated, especially when vaccination clinics are busy. If you are currently breastfeeding, you are welcome to bring your baby with you to the clinic. Women are also encouraged to bring their partners along.
“Vaccination remains the best way to protect against the known risks of COVID-19 in pregnancy for both mother and baby, including admission to intensive care and premature birth. We want to help as many mums and mums-to-be to get vaccinated.”
You can still book your vaccination online by visiting www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine, or by calling 119. To find a local walk-in clinic near you, visit www.thevaccinators.co.uk.
