Half term is the perfect opportunity for students aged 12 or older to grab a jab, particularly if they have missed out on the opportunity to get vaccinated as part of Intrahealth's in-school programme or if they need to be vaccinated for travel purposes, before the team visit their school again.  

The vaccine centres available over half term enable parents or guardians to accompany their child to their vaccination, as well as for adults to get their first, second or booster vaccine at the same time. It's never too late! 

You can choose to book an appointment or get a walk-in - whatever works best for you, as a number of the vaccine centres will also be able to take walk-ins for those over the age of 12.  

Princes Quay Vaccination Centre in Hull (HU1 2PQ) will be open throughout the February half-term holiday for anyone aged 12 and over that is eligible and still needs to get their first, second or third COVID-19 vaccine or booster. 

The centre is open seven days a week, from 8am-7pm for both booked appointments or walk-ins. The team from City Health Care Partnership (CHCP) advise that you book an appointment now via the national booking service to avoid any queues, and to speed up the process on the day. 

To book: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ 

Registered nurses are on hand throughout the day to provide advice about all areas of COVID-19 vaccinations, so if you are unsure if you and other members of your family are eligible or have questions about the vaccine don't hesitate to pop in for a chat without an appointment. Friendly volunteers are at the front of the Vaccination Centre to direct you in the right direction for advice, appointments and walk-ins.

Additional to Princes Quay, there are also vaccine centres in East Riding that are working alongside Intrahealth's in-school vaccination programme and are now able to accept walk-ins or pre-booked appointments for those 12 and over, with extra provision set-up for February half term. All can offer first, second, third or boosters (if eligible). 

Alfred Bean Hospital in Driffield (YO25 5JR) is currently offering a walk-in or pre-booked clinic every Friday, including Friday, 25 February in half term, between 2pm to 5pm, with Beverley Racecourse (HU17 8QZ) open between 9.30am to 6pm on Saturday, 19 February and from Thursday, 24 February to Saturday, 26 February. This offer is also currently available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Zoe Stevens, public health nurse consultant for East Riding of Yorkshire Council said: "If a young person in your household or family friend still needs their COVID-19 vaccines, why not help them access a jab this half term? There are a number of walk-in or pre-booked clinics available in the East Riding for anyone aged 12 and over, just select the best option for them, or for yourself - it's not too late for anyone to get their first vaccine. 

"Launching the Health and Wellbeing bus last year was a really successful collaboration with our partners, East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, CHCP and East Yorkshire Buses, so it's fantastic to have this resource up and running again to enable residents, as well as schools and local businesses, to access a COVID-19 vaccination. The bus has allowed us to address areas of health inequalities by taking the vaccine to communities which otherwise may have experienced difficulties getting to a vaccination site, whether this be related to transport, health or job restrictions."

Useful information 

If you've had a recent positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine. You need to: 

  • wait four weeks (28 days) if you're aged 18 years old or over 
  • wait 12 weeks (84 days) if you're aged 12 to 17 years old 
  • wait four weeks (28 days) if you're aged 12 to 17 years old and at high-risk from COVID-19

This is from the date you had symptoms, or the date of the positive test if you did not have any symptoms.
