People urged to get their covid jab in the next two weeks ahead of restrictions lifting in England

Health bosses in Leicestershire are encouraging people to get the jab so you can 'get back to what you enjoy.'

As well as adding more drop-in clinics, the Moderna vaccine will also be offered at the Peepul Centre.

Like the Pfizer vaccine, Moderna is suitable for anyone aged 18+, including pregnant women.

Andy Williams, Chief Executive of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Groups said: “We are so close to being able to get back to normal. 

Please go and get your vaccine in the next two weeks. It will be so worthwhile when we can enjoy our summer of freedom with confidence. You can either book your appointment in advance or come along to a drop-in clinic at your convenience, including during evenings and weekends. We will be adding more options over the coming days.”

If you can't attend one of the drop in clinics, you can find out how to book an appointment here.
