COVID-19 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:
Everyone aged 18 and over is now eligible to have a COVID-19 booster vaccination three months after receiving a second dose. Appointments can be booked via the National Booking System two months after a second dose.

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.
