Dr Gary Howsam, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) chairman and local GP said: “Millions of people are now benefiting from protection from the virus and this has contributed to dramatic falls in infections, hospitalisations and deaths across the country.
“Vaccines are extremely safe and effective and I’d encourage anyone who is eligible, to drop in to one of our walk-in clinics for their AstraZeneca second dose and join the millions of people who have already had theirs.
“For people who would rather book an appointment, they can do so via the nhs.uk/covid-vaccination website, where people who have an existing appointment at 12 weeks can check availability first, before cancelling and rescheduling their second appointment on an earlier date.”
