All four of Norfolk's mass vaccination centres are open on Tuesday, despite a blanket of snow still covering the county.
Roads across the area remain hazardous after a further sprinkling of snow and lows of -5C overnight.
Some parts of Norfolk have seen up to 13cm fall within the past 24 hours, with a yellow weather warning likely to remain in place until Wednesday.
The inclement conditions forced the large-scale vaccination site at North Walsham Community Centre to close on Monday for safety reasons.
The site at Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech also remains open.
Those who were due to be inoculated in North Walsham on Monday are being encouraged to rebook appointments via the national booking system.
Those unable to access the website are advised to call 119.
Meanwhile, Norfolk and Waveney CCG has confirmed all planned vaccine clinics at its GP-led primary care hubs would go ahead on Tuesday.
Patients are, however, being encouraged to consider their safety and only travel to appointments if it is sensible.
Those unable to attend will be contacted by the NHS in the coming days to re-book.
The following advice has also been given to people with upcoming appointments:
- 1 The Norfolk market town that used to be in Suffolk
- 2 Where are Norfolk and Waveney's Covid vaccination sites?
- 3 Results of testing for new variant in South Norfolk 'could take weeks'
- 4 First patients receive Covid jab at new mass vaccination centre
- 5 New mass vaccination centre opening in Norfolk
- 6 Delays possible as 23m long boat travels along A47 and A11
- 7 Full list: £715,000 to be spent to make 113 Norfolk roads safer
- 8 Man denies causing death by dangerous driving after fatal A143 crash
- 9 Section of A140 to close over the weekend
- 10 More than 6,000 people tested for Covid variant
- Please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible and no more than 10 minutes before your appointment.
- If you arrive early for your appointment, please wait in your car. Bring a blanket, hot drink and a book or newspaper to make your wait more comfortable.
- Wrap up warm. Lots of thin layers are recommended as well as a warm winter coat, hat, gloves and scarf. A short-sleeve base layer will make it easier to administer the vaccine in the upper arm.
- If you are unable to attend your appointment safely, contact your vaccination site to let them know if you can. If you cannot attend or get through to cancel, please do not worry. The NHS will contact you to re-book your appointment in the coming days.
