People in Devon are being urged to bring forward their second COVID-19 vaccination to reduce the interval between doses to eight weeks. They can either rebook their appointment or attend one of the many walk-in clinics being held around Devon.

The government recently shortened the dosing interval to eight weeks for those under 40 years old, which means all adults are now eligible to have the second dose of their COVID-19 vaccination eight weeks after the first and will have had the opportunity to get a full course of vaccine by mid-September.

Details of walk-in clinics are being regularly shared on the social media pages of the NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and you can find your nearest walk-in clinic on the NHS website.

Booked appointments can be made through the National Booking Service or by calling 119. If you attend a walk-in session and have a booked appointment for a second dose, please remember to cancel it.
