Responding to the significant demand on the COVID vaccination service, on December 18-19, Knights Pharmacy, Bishop Auckland, DL14 6AB, will open at 8am on Saturday morning and remain open throughout the night and all-day Sunday until 8pm – a total of 36hrs.
Appointments are available to book via the National Booking System https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or by calling 119
Over 1500 appointments will be available.
Pete Horrocks, Superintendent Pharmacist , said: “The NHS have asked us to step up our efforts and we are ready to take on the challenge.
“Offering appointments throughout the night will improve accessibility and much needed supply.
“There are many shift workers across Co Durham and we hope that this will offer a convenient solution to the healthcare, hospitality and industry workers that otherwise may struggle to book a daytime vaccination.”
