According to the most recent Government data, nearly 29 million people across the UK have received their booster vaccine to assist in the fight against Coronavirus, but with the Omicron variant seen as a bigger threat than ever, councils are looking to ensure more of the population can pick up their vaccinations.

Anyone aged 12 or over can now receive the first and second dose of the vaccine, while people aged 18 and over were given the ability to pick up their booster in mid December, and all doses are available from walk-in sites.

Six sites across Sunderland will be offering vaccinations to anyone eligible who wants one, and at least one will be open each day of the first two weeks of the year, with the exception of New Year’s Day.
