Drop-in vaccine clinics have been set up to help offer patients the chance to get their Covid-19 jab.

Matt Brown, Executive Director of Operations at NHS South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: "If you haven't had your jab yet, now is the time to get protected and get set for summer.

"Every day this week coming, there's a chance to drop in and get your vaccine with no appointment needed, so it's never been easier to protect yourself.

"More than 80% of people in South Tyneside have had at least one dose of the vaccine – it's the best way to protect yourself and the people you care about."
