Hot weather is forecast this week and queues are expected due to demand for the vaccine. Therefore, those organising the mobile vaccinations are advising people to come prepared with a drink and sunscreen if needed, as there may be a wait when you arrive.

The NHS said the mobile facility "makes getting your jab easier and more convenient", and says clinicians will be on hand to answer questions and address any concerns people might have.
