The Covid-19 vaccine roll-out has begun

Covid vaccinations in Lancashire and South Cumbria

NHS in England has begun the biggest and most highly anticipated immunisation campaign in history at hospital hubs and local vaccination services run by Primary Care teams, with more starting vaccinations over the coming weeks and months as the programme ramps up.

Since the Pfizer vaccine got the green light from regulators last week, health service staff have been working around the clock to manage the huge scale logistical challenge of deploying the vaccine.

The rollout of the vaccine involves a wide range of organisations working together. The NHS locally, regionally and nationally is leading the work, but with significant support from Lancashire County Council, Cumbria County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, Blackpool Council, our district councils, the military, police and many more.
