The pop ups will offer first and second Pfizer and Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccinations to eligible adults over 18 and provide Pfizer jabs to our 16 to 17 year olds. Second doses can be given if eight weeks (56 days) have passed since receiving the first dose.

The pop ups will be held at Trinity Methodist Church, Trinity Gardens, 351 Bramhall Lane, SK3 8TP. Parking is limited, so drivers are asked to use the on-site car park at Trinity Church, or to park responsibly in the surrounding residential roads. Alternatively, Davenport station is about a 10 minute walk.

Stockport also has a number of community pharmacies offering walk in and bookable appointments. To view the full range of options in Stockport, and how to book, visit the NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group website.

Dr Cath Munro, Chair of NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We cannot get complacent about vaccinations and we must keep going. It is imperative we stay on-track to make sure we are protecting ourselves, our family and friends and wider community.

“The pop ups are for anyone who is eligible for a vaccination, aged 16 or over. It doesn’t matter if people are coming for the first time, or whether they are completing their vaccination with their second jabs.”

Councillor Jude Wells, Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health at Stockport Council, said: “We are in a strong position, but it needs to be stronger. We’d like to see more first-timers, people completing their vaccinations by getting second jabs done, and more 16-17 year olds for the Pfizer jab.

“People can walk in without having to book and for anyone who cannot make it we also have a number of community pharmacies offering appointments which can be accessed on the national booking line.”
