Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre extends opening hours to support booster jab roll-out

Longley Lane, Sheffield open 8am-10pm 7 days a week

 Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre extends opening hours to support booster jab roll-out

Thanks to an incredible response from NHS staff to the call for a faster roll-out of Covid booster vaccines, the Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre is extending its opening hours from tomorrow (Tuesday 14 December).

The centre will be open 7 days a week from 8am to 10pm to enable more people to book their booster jab. The full address of the centre is Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre Longley Lane, Sheffield S5 7JN.

First, second and booster jabs are available at the centre. To have a booster you need to be aged 18 or over and be 3 months since your second COVID vaccination. You can book your booster appointment when it is two months since your second vaccine but the appointments you will be offered will be on or after the 3 months date.

Please book an appointment before attending as this will help to avoid queuing or long waits at the centre.

Kirsten Major, Chief Executive of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Today we have seen exceptional demand on the COVID vaccination website nationally, which is brilliant, but we are aware it has meant people having to wait longer than expected to get onto the system to book. We would ask people to please be patient and keep trying to book an appointment before attending vaccination centres such as Longley Lane because this will help us to prevent long queues and help us to vaccinate people with as few delays as possible. We have plenty of appointments and are adding more each day so you will be able to get your vaccination. I would like to thank all the NHS staff and volunteers who since the announcement by the Prime Minister last night have worked around the clock to make sure we have even more opportunities for people to get protected from this awful virus. I’d also like to thank everyone who has had their vaccinations – it really is the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves and each other from the challenges that the new omicron variant may pose.”

You can book online at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or call 119 free of charge and someone will help you to book an appointment.

Additional appointments are also being made available at a number of other centres across South Yorkshire including GP led sites, Community Pharmacies and some hospital sites. Please visit Sheffield Teaching Hospitals website: www.sth.nhs.uk
