Get jabbed for Christmas – the walk-in clinics opening for the festive period

Christmas is here but Coronavirus is not going anywhere – that’s why the vaccination programme will not stop for the holidays.

The ambitious target to get all adults in the UK vaccinated by the end of the month is ending closer.

Local NHS bosses announced more than 50 walk-in vaccination clinics this week with some keeping their doors open until midnight.

As families across Leicester and the wider county wind down this evening for Christmas, some jab clinics will keep going.
