Pfizer vaccine clinics at Rochdale Infirmary next week

Date published: 11 June 2021

Extra vaccination clinics are being held at Rochdale Infirmary next week as the drive to increase Covid-19 vaccination take-up and stop the spread of the virus continues.

The Rochdale Care Organisation, which runs Rochdale Infirmary and community services, is inviting people from Rochdale to come and get their first dose of Pfizer vaccine at one of a number of community drop in clinics at Rochdale Infirmary between Tuesday 15 June and Friday 18 June.

These clinics are for first vaccine doses only and no appointment is necessary, people can just drop in at any time while the clinic is open.

Those attending the Rochdale Infirmary drop in clinics must be eligible for their first vaccine, must not have already had their first vaccine or not already have an appointment booked in anywhere else.

  • Aged 25 and over
  • Aged 18 and over with an underlying health condition that puts them at increased risk
  • Aged 18 and over AND living, caring or working with anyone with an underlying health condition that puts them at increased risk
  • Health and social care staff
  • Any carers – paid or unpaid

If you are unsure if you are eligible then you are encouraged to attend the clinic and the staff will be able to advise.

If you want to get your vaccine at one of the drop in clinics, you must also be registered with a GP in the borough of Rochdale.

Those attending the drop in clinics should bring their NHS number if possible, which can be found on the NHS website or a recent NHS letter.

The drop in clinics at Rochdale Infirmary are open on the following dates and times.

  • Tuesday 15 June 12.30pm - 7.00pm

Dr Shona McCallum, Medical Director at Rochdale Care Organisation, said: “If you are eligible and have not yet had your first Covid vaccine then I would encourage you to come along to one of the drop in sessions running at Rochdale Infirmary to get your vaccine asap. Now is a good time to have this done to help stop the spread of the new variant. We are looking forward to welcoming you at one of our clinics and helping you protect yourself, your family and friends from Covid.”
