A booster vaccination clinic will be held this weekend at Bromley Football Club as the NHS races against the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

All those aged 18 and above and who have had their second dose more than three months ago can get their booster shot between 10am and 4pm on December 19.

The clinic will be held at The Hayes Lane Stadium - the home of Bromley FC.

Members of the public will be encouraged to book their vaccine boosters in advance, but walk-in appointments will also be available.

Free lateral flow test kits can also be collected from the stadium on the day.

The initiative comes as data released yesterday shows that Bromley’s Covid cases were up 35.2 per cent during the week December 8 to December 14.

Three deaths within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test were reported in the borough yesterday.

Clinical director and lead GP for the vaccination clinic Dr Alka Sharma said: “We are holding this special clinic to help make it as easy and accessible as possible for those who are eligible to come forward.

"The vaccine is the best way to protect you and your loved ones.”

Current coronavirus guidance asks people to work from home where possible and wear face coverings in most indoor settings.
