West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has today joined the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in urging everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
“I would like to ask all residents of West Lancashire aged 18 or over to come forward for a COVID-19 vaccine if they have not done so already.
“I am really glad to hear that the CCG have now increased the number of pop up clinics available in the area. It is now really easy to get the jab in West Lancashire, with these walk-in clinics taking place across the whole borough, so you can turn up without an appointment to get a jab at your convenience!
“There is a vaccine bus that is visiting areas across the West Lancashire, which also does not require an appointment.
“Getting vaccinated doesn’t just protect you, but your loved ones and everyone in West Lancashire. “
Full, up-to-date information on these walk-in sites is available on West Lancashire CCG’s website and social media channels. https://www.westlancashireccg.nhs.uk/covid-19-vaccination-programme/
Emma Robinson, COVID-19 vaccination programme manager for NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said:
“We have been encouraged by uptake for our pop up clinics and are pleased to be able to extend our pop up clinic offer, giving residents of West Lancashire even more opportunity to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
“It has been a true team effort between GPs, local authority and CCG staff and volunteers, as well as community leaders and those who have allowed us to use their venues.
“If you are 18 or over, please come forward to one of our clinics to receive either your first dose or the booster second dose, which gives you stronger and longer-lasting protection against the virus. You do not need an appointment and we have made every effort to reach out to residents across every area of West Lancashire.”
