The Vaccine Bus Is Coming

An NHS ‘Health on the Move’ Covid-19 vaccine bus will be at Asda Lower Earley on Saturday 17, Sunday 18 and Monday 19 July, and Norreys Church on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 July, as the council pushes to get even more residents vaccinated in line with restrictions easing.


Residents can get their first or second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at these sites; with the Asda Lower Earley site open 11am to 4pm on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July, and 1pm to 6pm on Monday 19 July. The bus at Norreys Church will be open 1pm to 6pm on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 July.


No need to book in advance


120 doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be available each day and given on a first come-first services basis – there is no need to book in advance. Those hoping for a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine must have an eight-week gap since their first and bring their vaccine card with them.


People are encouraged to bring proof of age. Anyone not able to get a jab at these sites can still book their first or second dose of the vaccine through the NHS website.


Maximum protection against the virus


Please note, there is no parking available at the church; it is asked that visitors are considerate and do not cause any obstructions in the surrounding residential area. The church is based on Norreys Avenue (RG40 1UU).


Residents are encouraged to keep up with their twice-weekly lateral flow tests to check they aren’t infected and spreading the virus unknowingly; as well as getting a PCR test if they develop any symptoms.
