Coronavirus vaccination centre opens to the public at County Hall

Published December 23, 2021 2.08pm

Members of the public can now get their coronavirus jab at a new location in County Durham.

The vaccination centre based at County Hall, Aykley Heads Durham is now available to book for first, second or booster vaccine doses to everyone over the age of 18.

The vaccination centre will be open between 9.00am and 7.00pm on the following dates:

  • Thursday 23 December 2021
  • Monday 27 December to Thursday 30 December 2021
  • Monday 3 January to Saturday 8 January 2022

As well as being open to the public, the County Hall vaccination centre is also vaccinating those working in health and social care.  The centre is being run by clinical professionals, including nurses and pharmacists, from County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust with support from our staff. 

Members of the public can walk in without an appointment or can book an appointment in advance online on the NHS: Book a Covid-19 vaccine page or by calling the national booking system on 119.

Best line of defence

Amanda Healy, County Durham's Director of Public Health, said: "Ensuring we are fully vaccinated is our best line of defence against Covid-19. I would urge anyone who is yet to book their first, second or booster jab to make an appointment as soon as possible.

"It's also important we all remain vigilant over the festive period and continue with the measures we know work against all strains of coronavirus. This includes wearing face coverings when required unless exempt, keeping a one to two metre distance from others, ventilating enclosed spaces or meeting outside, washing our hands thoroughly and often, getting tested regularly, and self-isolating when required."
