The vaccination clinic at Brentford Leisure Centre has Pfizer jabs available for walk-in adults aged 18 and over on Sunday 6 June from 9.00 am – 4.00pm.
The clinic has published a message saying they had low take-up for their sessions on Friday 4 and Sunday 6 June.
‘In order to avoid wastage we have decided to open up the clinic for walk ins just like the Twickenham clinic. Please let your freinds and family, everyone 18+ know to come down and get their vaccine. I am also asking everyone who is on social media to post in social media, post in Whatsapp groups to help fill our clinics’.
There has been some confusion in social media as to whether this message is correct, with contrary messages from official looking sources. But The Chiswick Calendar has heard of several young people turning up on Friday and being vaccincated. This is one message we received:
‘Hi all, it’s real. A friend’s son (18) was turned away as a walk-in this morning but was successful this afternoon. It’s based on the number of people who turn up, so be persistent.
Nigel Walley (Chiswick resident) tweeted on Friday:
‘I have seen tweets saying there are no walk-ins. This is not true! My son aged 22 just did a walk-in and got jabbed. Very pleased. Thank you @NHSEnglandLDN’
If you’re 18+ and would like to be vaccinated, it’s clearly worth going along and queuing. Take ID and your NHS number.
