Walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations for 16-17 year olds

We don’t want you to spread the virus but we DO want you to spread this message. Please pass these details on to your friends and family. 16-17 year olds can now get their Pfizer vaccine at a drop-in vaccination clinic.

Just over 5,000 people aged under 18 in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes have now been vaccinated. Geraint Davies, Senior Responsible Officer for the Vaccination Programme, from Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “We would urge anyone who hasn’t yet been vaccinated to come forward to get the very best protection before the autumn and winter, and younger people to have the single dose recommended by experts before schools, colleges and universities reopen in September.


“Even if you’ve had the virus, it’s important to get the vaccine to protect you and your loved ones.


"Our friendly staff are experienced at supporting people who are nervous about being vaccinated and you can ask any questions you might have on the day. Do let staff know if you’re worried when you arrive at a vaccination centre, and if you’d like to bring someone along to support you, that’s absolutely fine.


“Young people can just turn up to one of the walk-in sessions across the area now or wait to be contacted by the NHS to book an appointment.”

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 please don’t attend any vaccination centre but instead self-isolate and get a test.
