Another drop in covid vaccination clinic will run at the Saga site in Ramsgate on Saturday (June 26) and is open to anyone aged 18 and over.

The clinic, run by the Margate/Mockett Wood GP hub, will be open from 8am-1pm and 1.30pm-5pm and will be offering the Pfizer vaccine for first and second jabs. For this clinic second jabs must be at least eight weeks after the first jab has been received.

Dr Ash Peshen, who is part of the GP hub team, said last Saturday’s drop in resulted in 2,500 doses being administered.

The hub team currently operate from the site on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Earlier this month the GP-led team celebrated reaching the milestone of reaching 100,000 doses given.

The GP hub has operated at Saga since March.

The drop in  clinic on Saturday is open to anyone in Thanet and adjoining areas.


  1. Can I urge everyone to get it done! There are many people like me, elderly, with life threatening lung diseases, and heart conditions, which if they catch the virus will kill them! At least a third of people with the virus don’t know they have it, which means they could infect someone else, and that someone could be me! I have had both jabs, but no one knows how long immunisation is, it may only be a few a months! If so people like me will become susceptible again!

    Hands up all those people who know of someone dying of Cow Pox, Small Pox, diphtheria, Tuberculosis, Poliomyelitis, Scarlet Fever, Cholera, Typhus, Measles, and many more once common life threatening diseases? The answer is none, because medical science has eliminated them, so get the jab!

    • Dumpton, many who have done detailed research over the last year have made an informed choice not to take this experimental gene therapy as it is still in trials until 2023, with liability for any vax damage waived for the drugs companies involved. The American vaccine specialist who invented the mRNA technology, Dr Robert Malone, recently tweeted his concerns: ‘The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is cytotoxic [it poisons body cells]. That is a fact. Who says so? Multiple peer-reviewed references. The Salk Institute. It is the responsibility of the vaccine developers to demonstrate that their expressed version is not toxic. Show us.’ An apparently unexpected and lethal recent discovery is that the protein produced by the vaccine does not stay in that site of the arm, but is carried by the blood to many other body sites. The protein is also known to bind to the cells that line blood vessels causing both blood clot formation and abnormal bleeding (women are experiencing this globally). The UK government/MHRA 20th update on adverse reactions to Covid Vaccines show 949,287 adverse reactions and 1,332 deaths (the yellow card system is estimated to show only between 1 and 10 per cent of the true figures). The figures via the CDC (US) and EMA (Europe) are far greater. The death rate from covid is a very small 0.66 per cent (BMJ). Death rates from heart issues, cancer, addictions, suicides, car accidents etc. are far higher – and yet we did not shut down the country to tackle these. Sadly the lockdowns have seen a large increase in suicides and mental health problems across all ages.

      • What’s your advice to me please, I suffer with Angina, copd breathing problems , most of my friends have been ill with headaches , flu symptons but only for a day or so , so unsure whenever to have these jabs or not.
        The way I see it is if I don’t go near anyone as only two in my home, would I be correct in saying I cannot pass it on if I have it or catch it.

        Thank you

        • Ultimately it is your choice-sadly nobody including your doctor, those who make it or the worlds best scientists can predict what reactions you will or will not have, as this is a first in history, with no long-term studies & replications done by peers & basically everybody who has one of the vaccines is a guinea pig.

          The good news is they seem to be reducing the severity of symptoms & deaths-meaning the hospitals are a lot less busy & anybody who does contract it & has serious side effects will not be denied a ventilator any longer, will have a lot more care & there appear to be some promising treatments coming along to join the ones that have been discovered over the last year to keep people alive & improve their lot that weren’t around for the first 6-8 months.

      • Democrat, thats a load of gobblygook! Millions are alive today because they have been immunised against killer diseases! Over 600,000 people died in the USA, and what is it, some 150,000 people in the UK, and it stands at practically zero daily now because people have been jabbed! At one time hundreds were dying daily in the UK remember! The virus can only be eliminated if sufficient people are immunised! Don’t be a pillock, get jabbed, because you could infect someone else!

        • Correction Democrat! Just checked the BBC News website, and the daily death toll due to coronavirus around December/January was 1,250! Today its 15, what does that tell you Democrat that you are suffering from Pilockism I suggest you get help along with your jab!

  2. No offence Dumpton but you have been totally fooled. You stand there clapping at your window like performing seal for the nhs, while more people die from missed doctors appointments than covid. Its time people woke up. 10 billion a year pharmaceutical companies will be making in booster jobs for what is a common cold. Thats not to mention the original jabs. The rich don’t care about masks. If you fly private nobody wears a mask. When the cameras are away they don’t wear a mask. We are being taught what to think while we wait for furlough cheques to sit at home and spend money that filters back to rich people in a pandemic thats making them richer and richer than they could imagine. Sit at home and be taught what to think and call anyone that thinks outside of it a conspiracy theorist, when you have no theory at all other to think what you have been told to think. Sorry for the rant Dumpton, but I feel sorry for you and all of us stuck in this time of no freedom because of a cold and accepting and supporting it

  3. “We are being taught what to think”? No we’re not. What is all this paranoia stemming from?

    It must be absolutely awful being a conspiracy theorist and believing in such a depressing view of the world. There is plenty of freedom and covid is a pretty murderous sort of cold. I’d rather have a bit of a sniffle than covid any day.

  4. I have never “clapped for the NHS”. What I have done is never voted Tory, which I think is much more helpful.

  5. Trete you have caught Pillockism too, there is no cure, but it can be managed, get help! When I was growing up in the 40’s and 50’s people were terrified of getting TB, in fact I had an aunty who died of it, leaving my uncle with a baby, my cousin to be brought up by his mum, my Grandmother! Not just TB, but poliomyelitis, and it wasn’t uncommon to see people wearing leg irons because if it didn’t kill you, it could leave you crippled for life, or inside an iron lung! Dipheria was still prevalent, whooping cough, measles, Mumps, and many more, so when they started immunising us in school, we all lined up dutifully, and not only got our jab, we got a huge sense of relief that we were no longer in danger from these awful diseases that killed and maimed millions! Get the jab , don’t be a Pillock!
