The Covid-19 mass vaccine clinic at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium is now open to people of any age who are due for their second Pfizer jab.  

Everyone who gets vaccinated is being offered a complimentary all-access behind-the-scenes tour. 

NHS guidance recommends an eight-week gap between doses.

First jabs are also still available to anyone aged 18 and over who has not yet had their first coronavirus vaccination.

More than 6,000 people have been vaccinated at the stadium in Hornsey Road since Friday, meaning there are about 4,000 doses still available.
