With the first Covid-19 vaccinations in West Lancashire taking place this week, local MP Rosie Cooper said:
“It is fantastic to hear that as a country we have taken a key step in recovering from this terrible pandemic. I have been assured by regional organisers that a number of locations in West Lancashire will begin to offer vaccination appointments this week. The vaccination will play a vital part in returning to regular life in which we can visit friends and family without the fear of spreading the virus.
“It is important that all West Lancashire residents visit the Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria’s website to educate themselves on how and when they will be able get the Covid vaccine. This can be found at https://www.healthierlsc.co.uk/CovidVaccination.
“For the rollout of the vaccine to go smoothly, the NHS is asking that people wait to be offered an appointment by their local services, and that all appointments are attended where possible to prevent unnecessary delays.”
