Where to go to get Pfizer and Astra Zeneca vaccinations

More than 20 walk-in clinics in Hackney are offering the Pfizer vaccine to anyone aged 18 or over in need of their first dose, or those who need a second dose.
Community groups and volunteers are supporting the NHS-run clinics to ensure people from all backgrounds can access the vaccination.
Sandra Husbands, Director of Public Health for Hackney borough said: "More than 44 million people across the UK have already safely received their vaccines.
"With these local events we want to make sure that all our Hackney residents are kept safe through vaccination and we can get on the way to getting out of lockdown.
"We are working with community groups to ensure you can get the vaccine locally, by simply walking up on the day.”
Almost 140,000 residents have now had their first dose in Hackney, though the borough has some of the lowest vaccination rates in the country due to multiple factors including its young population, high levels of deprivation and ethnically diverse population.

The council's public health lead Cllr Chris Kennedy added: “Get jabbed to keep safe from Covid-19.
"Getting the vaccine protects not only yourself but your loved ones and the community around you. You don’t even need to be registered with a GP to get vaccinated."
