Walk-in COVID-19 vaccination appointments are now available at The Princess Margaret Hospital

Comments to be attributed to Ralph La Salle, Acting Senior Responsible Officer for the COVID-19 response in Canterbury:

In response to an increase in demand to get vaccinations sooner, a walk-in option is starting at The Princess Margaret Hospital in Cashmere from today, 20 September until 3 October.

Drop-ins are welcome anytime 2pm – 8pm, on weekdays, or 10am – 3pm on weekends. We can accommodate up to 300 drop-ins each day. This is in addition to our booked appointment capacity.

We are pleased to now be able to provide this option for people who have not yet booked their appointments and for people who’d like an earlier appointment.

We ask people who take up the chance to drop-in to The Princess Margaret Hospital remember to cancel any booked appointments no longer needed.

We recognise that school holidays are coming up and for those planning to travel, having at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can provide them with an additional level of protection. We continue to encourage proper hand hygiene, use of masks or face-coverings and scanning.

ENDS
