All over 18s in Bedford Borough able to get walk-in Pfizer vaccinations this Saturday

Pfizer vaccine

Anyone over 18 who is yet to receive their first dose of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) vaccine is able to turn up to the Gurdwara in Queen’s Park tomorrow (Saturday) between 1pm and 7pm.

First doses of the Pfizer vaccine are available to all Bedford Borough residents aged 18 and over, with no need to book this Saturday at the Guru Nanak Temple, 84 Ford End Rd, Queens Park Bedford MK40 4JX.

Bedford Borough still has one of the highest rates of infection in the country and getting vaccinated is one of the best ways to protect each other and stop the virus spreading.

Cllr Louise Jackson, health and wellbeing portfolio holder at Bedford Borough Council said: “Getting vaccinated is one of the most important things we can do to halt the spread of the virus, protect each other and get us all back to the things we’ve missed over the last year.

“This is the first time that vaccines have been made available to all Bedford Borough residents aged 18 and over, without a booking.

“You just need to turn up at the Guru Nanak Temple this Saturday between 1pm and 7pm and you’ll be able to get vaccinated. We’re hoping as many people as possible will come along, get the Pfizer vaccine and help us drive down the infection rate locally.”

Any residents aged over 18 that can’t make it on Saturday can still book to get the vaccine at either the Temple or Kings House on Ampthill Road via the booking website or by calling 01234 718077.
