After almost 2,000 people were vaccinated at Watford’s ‘Super Sunday’ Pfizer clinic back in June at Vicarage Road Stadium, residents including the newly eligible aged 16 and overs, are being urged to ‘score’ themselves their first COVID-19 vaccine or get their second dose, as the town’s biggest ever ‘pop-up’ vaccination clinic returns later this month on Sunday, August 22.
For one day only, Vicarage Road stadium will once again be transformed into a vaccination centre, giving the Pfizer vaccination to anyone aged 16+. Running from 10am until 6pm.
Available for walk-ins or booked appointments, the super-sized clinic is designed to support the town’s efforts to reduce infection rates and give people better protection by providing them with their first dose or second dose (for those who have received their 1st dose at least 8 weeks ago).
People who go along won’t need to provide ID and don’t need to be registered with a GP, nor be worried that their immigration details will be passed on.
Dr Asif Faizy, Board GP Watford and Three Rivers and Locality Chair said: “We saw the very best of Watford at the last clinic, with everyone in the community pulling together to help achieve so much and it was also really good to see so many people there from groups who have been under represented so far. Getting the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones, so please come down to the stadium for your first dose or your top-up second dose of Pfizer.”
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said: “These two ‘Super Sunday’ clinics are part of the tremendous work being done by the council, NHS and partners to encourage people to come forward for one of the safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines. Increasing vaccination uptake within all communities in the town will ensure that no one is left behind. We hope this event will be just as successful as our first Super Sunday Clinic back in June, especially with 16 and overs now eligible. The best thing that any of us can do to stop Covid spreading is to get both doses of the vaccine.”
