Wantage locals have raced to their local practice to receive their Covid spring booster jabs.

The Newbury Street Practice in the town was busy in recent days as residents arrived to get their booster jabs. 

A spokesperson for the practice on Facebook said: “The team at Newbury Street Practice are ready to welcome you for your Spring Covid booster.”

The practice also warned of the high volume of people expected to attend for their Spring Covid booster jabs.

“We are expecting over 1000 people to come to the Covid vaccine clinic that both practices are holding this morning,” said a post on the practice’s Facebook.

“Please consider walking, taking the bus or sharing a car if you can to help ease congestion, especially with the roadworks on Mably Way roundabout.”
