No appointment is required to get the jab with people just needing to turn up. Both first and second doses are available.

With evidence suggesting a better immune response when doses are given at least eight weeks apart, patients are being urged to wait until reaching that point before accessing a walk-in clinic for a second dose.

Alternatively, patients can bring their appointment forward via the national booking system to eight weeks if the original booking goes after this point
