People in North Somerset can now get their Covid vaccines from walk-in clinics in the area.
Walk-in clinics opened last week to enable people to get a Covid-19 vaccination at convenient sites without booking in advance.
Health bosses in the region are urging people to protect themselves and their loved ones by booking up for a vaccine as soon as possible.
People can either book an appointment using the online booking system, by calling NHS 119 or attending a walk-in clinic in their area.
Dr Michael Marsh, NHS England and NHS Improvement South West medical director, said: “The biggest vaccination programme in the history of the NHS is now on the home straight but there is still work to do.
“We have made fantastic progress but the call to come forward remains as important as it did in the early weeks of the vaccination programme.
“We need people to book their first appointment and subsequently ensure they receive both doses of the vaccine in order for them to gain the maximum protection and allow us to return to normal life as quickly as possible.”
People who attend a walk-in clinic for their first dose will have their vaccination record updated online and will then be able to book in their second dose appointment using the national booking system.
