Health on the Move van delivering more vaccinations across Bucks next week
The Health on the Move van will bring more COVID-19 vaccinations and booster jabs to Bucks over the coming week, with the mobile clinic due to visit Gerrards Cross, Aylesbury, Wingrave, Chesham, High Wycombe and Buckingham.
If you are eligible for a booster vaccination but have not yet had one, now is the time – the Health on the Move van makes getting your jab as convenient as possible. It has delivered more than 1600 doses of the vaccine across Bucks in the last four months.
And if you have not yet had your first or second vaccination dose, this evergreen offer remains open and you are welcome to visit the van.
These drop-in mobile clinics will be offering doses of the Pfizer vaccine.
Please remember – NHS guidance is to leave a gap of at least eight weeks between first and second vaccination doses and, if you are eligible for a booster, you must leave six months (182 days) between your second dose and your booster vaccination.

- Saturday, 20 November, 10am – 3pm, Tesco Gerrards Cross, Packhorse Road, SL9 8ER
