The health on the move team

Last month, Bucks Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), reports that over 1,000 vaccinations in the county were delivered using the Covid van.

Health officials are urging booster eligible people to organise their third vaccination now, after the first Omicron variant cases have been reported in the UK.

The first Covid case containing the Omicron variant mutation in Bucks, was reported on Wednesday (December 1).

The ICP advises the NHS will contact you to let you know when you are eligible for a booster vaccination.

While people who are yet to receive their first or second dose of a Covid vaccination, can walk-in and get jabbed by the 'health on the move' team now.

Next week's full schedule is as follows:

-Monday, December 6, 10am – 4pm, High Wycombe Cricket Club, London Road, HP11 1DE

-Wednesday, December 8, 10am – 3pm, Chesham Market, High Street, HP5 1BW

All dates and venues may be subject to last minute changes, the schedule can be checked on the Bucks CCG website here.

Healthcare officials hope the van will be back travelling across Bucks on the third week of December, but will confirm details nearer the time.
