Covid: 50% of 18-29 year olds in Nottingham unvaccinated – walk-ins without appointment available this weekend in the city

The highest rates of Covid-19 in England are now among those aged 20-24, while those from younger age groups have the lowest vaccination rates putting them at greater risk of serious illness.

It’s a stark fact that 50% of 18-29s in Nottingham are unvaccinated.

The NHS has put out a powerful video to remind young people that they can still get seriously ill with Covid and risk potentially lifelong health problems.

The video encourages them to get both jabs of the vaccine to reduce the risk of contracting or becoming seriously from Covid.

Anyone aged 16 and 17 in the city can now come forward and get their vaccination.

Two sites in the city, The Forest Recreation Ground and QMC, are welcoming walk-ins without an appointment, with both sites offering the Pfizer vaccine.

Anyone over 18 can walk into any vaccination centre. The full list of centres and opening times can be found here: https://nottsccg.nhs.uk/covid-19/covid-19-vaccinations/where-to-go-for-your-covid-19-vaccination-appointment/
