The Bridlington Primary Care Network (PCN), which includes all the GP practices in town, is hosting a walk-in clinic which will offer the Pfizer vaccine this Saturday (July 3).

The event is billed as ‘Bridlington’s own Have a Jab Saturday’.

The clinic is solely for Bridlington residents as the primary care team want to ensure that people don’t have to travel a long way to venues out of town to access their jab.

It will operate from 9am until 1pm at The Medical Centre on Station Avenue (YO16 4LZ).

Clinical director of the PCN, Dr Priya Reddy, said: “It’s so important everyone in our community is encouraged to take up their vaccination.

“This will keep our town safe. If you still have questions or concerns you need answering before your jab, please do ask your GP practice.”

Jaya Authunuri, lead pharmacist for the PCN’s vaccine programme who is also the pharmacist at the West Hill Pharmacy, said: “We want our residents especially those who previously felt unable to have a jab in the cohorts 1-9 and our younger residents over 18 who are now eligible to have easy access to a vaccine.”
