Extra drop-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics are running in Ayrshire this weekend.

Adults in Ayrshire who have yet to take up the offer of the COVID-19 vaccine, or are due their second dose, are being urged to visit one of the drop-in clinics running in the area until Sunday (July 18). 

No appointment is necessary and people can attend any clinic in the area, whether they are due a first dose or second dose of the vaccine, if eight weeks have passed.

Drop-in clinics will continue after Sunday, but this weekend will see extra clinics and pop-up facilities running to make it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccine, as the first dose phase of the programme nears completion.

The NHS Board will be promoting the most up-to-date details of clinics in the area via social media throughout the weekend.

Drop-in vaccinations are available at the following clinics:

Friday, July 16 

Ardrossan Civic Centre

Greenwood Conference Centre, Dreghorn

Saturday, July 17

Lisa Davidson, Assistant Director for Public Health at NHS Ayrshire & Arran, said: “Getting the COVID-19 vaccine has never been easier. If you’ve yet to take up the offer of a vaccine, for whatever reason, now is the time to come forward.

“Drop in clinics are running in locations across Ayrshire until Sunday. You don’t need an appointment, and can drop in at a venue convenient to you, here or anywhere in Scotland.

“We know that getting both doses of the vaccine offers maximum protection against the virus, so if you have not yet had your first jab, or it has been longer than eight weeks since your first jab, come along to your nearest clinic and we will get you vaccinated for your second.”

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf added: “We are currently working through the final group on the JCVI priority list – those aged between 18 and 29 - and we know that the extra drop-in clinics being operated by mainland health boards until Sunday make it easier for them to fit getting vaccinated into their busy lives.

"Walk-ins will still be available after this week but now is the time to take advantage of all the additional facilities on offer."
