Medical staff will be on hand to answer any questions people may have.

Patients getting their second dose must have waited at least eight weeks since their first.

It is being organised by Hartlepool Borough Council with Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Group.

The council has organised a series of walk-in clinics to help boost the vaccine take up.

Two more will be held at Victoria Medical Practice, Victoria Road, on the Tuesdays of August 24 and 31 from 9am-7pm.

Government data shows a total of 119,518 vaccinations have been given in Hartlepool, with 55,378 people now double-jabbed.
