Vaccinations began rolling out in West Lancashire in December 2020 in dedicated vaccination hubs. The rollout now further continues across many community settings. These vaccinations are taking place at local vaccination sites (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in communities.
The four locations offering COVID-19 vaccinations in West Lancashire are:
- Hants Lane Clinic, Ormskirk
- Birleywood Health Centre, Skelmersdale
- The Old People’s Club, Burscough
- Edge Hill University
Everyone aged 18 and over is now eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccination. For second doses, there should be an eight week gap between doses as per NHS England guidance.
It is important to note that even when you have received your vaccine, you should still continue to wear your facemask when visiting healthcare settings.
