Vaccinations for 18-24-year-olds in surge testing wards
All residents aged 18 to 24 who are living in Bulmershe & Whitegates, Evendons, Norreys and Wescott, are encouraged to come and get the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at our pop-up vaccination clinic, which opened 15th June.
The clinic will be at Bulmershe Leisure Centre between Tuesday 15 June and Sunday 27 June (inclusive). The site will be open 9.30am to 8.30pm by walk-in only; you cannot book in advance.
All those coming to the centre for a vaccination must bring proof of ID and proof of address because this programme is targeting those in the affected wards only.
Below is a checklist for those hoping to get a vaccine at Bulmershe Leisure Centre as part of surge vaccination:
- Don’t come to the centre if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have had a positive test in the past 28 days
- Check you are eligible – aged 18 to 24 (inclusive) and living in Bulmershe & Whitegates, Evendons, Norreys or Wescott ward – and bring proof of address and ID to the centre
- Check Wokingham Borough Council’s website or Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates
- Those living in target wards should still get tested this week as part of our surge testing offer, even if they have had the vaccination.
There may be high demand for this service, so please be patient during this time. Anyone not living in these wards will be turned away. There will be NO parking at the leisure centre – nearest parking is in Woodley town centre.
Anybody who does not know what ward they are in can check the postcode tracker on the Wokingham Borough Council surge testing webpage.
This service is for first doses only – second doses should also be booked through the NHS website. In addition, residents aged 25 and over can continue to book their vaccine at a mass vaccination centre through the NHS website.
