A number of locations are offering Covid jabs on a walk-in basis this weekend as the drive to protect as many people as possible intensifies. 

Sites across Norfolk and Waveney are inviting patients to drop in for a vaccine, with no appointment necessary.

It comes as part of a nationwide effort to combat the rising number of coronavirus cases. 

NHS England chief executive, Sir Simon Stevens, said the country was in a "race to the finish line" of its vaccination programme as summer freedoms loom.

When attending a walk-in clinic, patients are advised to take their NHS number to get booked in quickly.

However, if you do not have your number or are not registered with a GP, you will still get vaccinated. 

You do not need to show identification and you do not need to give your full name or address. 

It does not matter whether you are a UK citizen or what your immigration status is, how long you have been here or how long you expect to stay.
