The clinics are open to anyone aged 18 or over and a Hartlepool Borough Council statement notes: “Younger people, in particular, are encouraged to get their jabs.”

Those planning to attend for a second dose of a vaccine are reminded that it must be at least eight weeks since they received the same first dose.

Medical staff will be on hand to answer any questions

Craig Blundred, the council’s director of public health, said: “It is very important to get both doses as full vaccination is the best way for people to protect themselves and those around them from Covid.

“The vast majority of cases we are currently seeing are in younger age groups who are now eligible for vaccination and the fact we are not seeing as many in older groups who have had the vaccine is testament to the success of the rollout.”
