Over the next six weeks, people can have their COVID-19 vaccination while they shop at a new Vaccination Clinic at Cabot Circus, BS1 3BX. The NHS Clinic is located on the upper ground floor of Cabot Circus next to Five Guys and Claire’s, and is part of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire’s (BNSSG) drive to make it as easy as possible to be vaccinated around work and lifestyle commitments.

The Pfizer clinic is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11am to 7pm, from 12 August until 2 October. It is open to anyone aged 17 ¾ and over having their first vaccination or their second dose if their first dose was 8 weeks ago. No appointment is needed and full details, alongside information about other local walk-in clinics, can be found at www.grabajab.net.

Dr Tim Whittlestone, Clinical Lead for the BNSSG Vaccination Programme, said: “We are delighted to open this clinic at Cabot Circus. We’re working hard to make it as easy as possible for people in our area to have the COVID-19 vaccination and this fantastic destination in the heart of Bristol’s shopping district, couldn’t be more convenient!

“Throughout the vaccine roll-out, we have challenged ourselves to think differently about how we make the COVID-19 vaccine as accessible as possible for the communities we serve; we’re grateful to the team at Cabot Circus for making this Clinic possible. Cases of COVID-19 in our area remain high. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and the people you love from COVID-19.”
