Both centres are supporting the national Big Weekend Walk-in event.

Dr Sarah Raistrick, local GP and Chair of Coventry and Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Groups, said: “I’m happy to say that this will be by far one of the busiest weekends of vaccinations we have ever had. Now that every adult can have a vaccination, it’s the perfect weekend to open up the doors to many more walk-in clinics and get every adult on the path to being protected from this very serious illness.

"We’re hoping that people from all over Coventry and Warwickshire take this opportunity to grab the chance to receive their vaccinations.”

Other venues taking part include the Coventry and Warwickshire area are the Coventry Transport Museum, in Millennium Place, Hales Street, Coventry, which will be open on Saturday and Sunday June 27 from 10am to 3pm.
