We have taken the decision to cancel a number of planned vaccination walk-in sessions in Hertfordshire and west Essex this week. Significant demand is leading to unacceptably long queues for the public and causing traffic disruption around some of our larger vaccination centre sites.
Please don’t leave home without checking the COVID pages on the Healthier Future website to find out whether a walk-in session is still planned.
Additional sessions will now become bookable online at the NHS website or by calling 119 – giving people the security of a guaranteed appointment time.
Thousands of additional appointments in our area are being added to the national booking service this week – please check back with the site if you can’t find a suitable appointment the first time you look.
Please be kind and understanding with staff and volunteers who are working hard to help you in very fast-moving circumstances.
We would like to thank the public and our media colleagues for their continued support of the vaccination programme. More walk-ins will be planned and scheduled over the next fortnight.
