Coronavirus vaccine centres are accepting walk-ins this week to allow people without a booking to get a jab.

It comes amid a drive to get everyone fully vaccinated due to the spread of the delta variant of the virus.

Around 75 per cent of adults in the UK are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, with nearly 90 per cent having now had their first jab.

Below is a list of all the vaccine sites in south Essex accepting walk-ins this week.
