One of the walk-in clinics will take place at Hartlepool's Mill House Leisure Centre.

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.

Booster jabs will also be available although those people who are eligible to receive are reminded that it must be at least 182 days or six months since they received their second dose of vaccine.

The clinics are open to anyone aged 16 or over.

Younger people, in particular, are encouraged to get their jabs and medical staff will be on hand to answer any questions.

Urging people who have yet to receive vaccine to attend, Craig Blundred, Hartlepool Borough Council’s director of public health, said: “As we approach the winter season, it’s also vital that eligible people across Hartlepool get their Covid booster jab to protect themselves, their loved ones and our NHS.

“If people don’t get their booster jab, they ultimately increase their risk of catching Covid-19 and having a more serious illness, which would also result in increased pressures on our NHS.”
