COVID-19 vaccination walk-in service

COVID vaccine

If you are a Bracknell Forest resident aged 18 and over, you can get your first or second COVID-19 vaccination at our walk-in sites. This runs from Friday 25 June until Wednesday 30 June and you do not need to book.

Vaccination walk-in sites

The walk-in sites are:

  • Waitrose Sports and Leisure Centre, Willoughby Road, Bracknell, RG12 8FP
  • Birch Hill Medical Centre, Bracknell, RG12 7WW

Opening hours

Waitrose Sports and Leisure Centre will be open on:

  • Friday 25 June to Wednesday 30 June: 8:30am to 7pm (Pfizer and AstraZeneca each day)

Birch Hill Medical Centre will be open on:

  • Monday 28 June: 9am to 5pm (Pfizer)
  • Tuesday 29 June: 1pm to 7pm (Pfizer)
  • Wednesday 30 June: 8am to 6pm (Pfizer)

If it is your first dose

If you use a walk-in site to have your first dose, you will have your vaccination record updated online. You can then book in your second dose appointment using the NHS booking system.

If it is your second dose

If you use a walk-in site to have your second dose, make sure it has been 8 weeks since your first dose.

You also need to make sure that you use a site which has the vaccine that you were given for your first dose.

You can still use the walk-in service even if you already have your second dose appointment booked. Please cancel your original appointment to allow it to be reallocated. If your second dose was booked via the national booking system, you need to cancel your booking on the NHS booking system or call 119 to cancel. If you booked through a local vaccination service, you will need to contact them to cancel.

More information

Getting your second dose is vital to getting longer lasting and maximum protection offered by the vaccines. Recent research also shows they are highly effective against the Delta strain of the virus.

If you don’t want to use one of the walk-in sites, then you can still book your vaccination though the NHS booking system.

If you do not have internet access or cannot go online, you can call 119 instead to book your jab.

In line with updated Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation guidance, people aged 39 years or under and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer vaccine.
