The drop-in clinics are for 18 to 39-year-olds who haven’t had the first Pfizer vaccine and those 40 or over who haven’t had the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The centres can also be accessed for a second dose if the person is aged 18 or over and has had their first dose of the AstraZeneca or Prizer vaccines nine weeks ago or more.

An NHS Forth Valley spokesperson said: “If you are in one of these groups you can drop into any of the sessions.”
