Get your booster jab in central Lancashire at the new Bamber Bridge siteDate posted: 18th December 2021
The push to provide booster vaccinations ahead of the festive period continues in central Lancashire with the opening of a new clinic at Ribble House in Bamber Bridge.
The vaccination clinic is opening on the Ribble House site from Monday, 20 December and is open to boosters as well as first and second doses.
Anyone, 18 and over who has had the second dose of a covid-19 more than three months ago is being encouraged to attend the clinic which will be open 8:30am until 6pm, seven days a week.
The addition of new clinics and extended opening hours across sites will help the NHS vaccination programme offer every adult the chance to book a COVID-19 booster vaccine by the end of the year in a race to protect the nation against the Omicron variant.

Jane Scattergood, Senior Responsible Officer for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Covid-19 Vaccination Programme, is urging people to get their booster jab without delay.
“The NHS is working closely with all its partners on a rapid response to the new omicron variant of the virus in order to protect our local residents. We have plenty of vaccine for everyone and have made it as easy as possible for them to come forward to be vaccinated.
A huge thank you to all our staff and partners who are working hard on the delivery of this next phase of the vaccination programme and are helping to protect our residents and their loved ones.”
Caroline Donovan, Chief Executive at Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, said:
“We are delighted to be able to support the national NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme. Our team here has done an extraordinary amount of work in the past week getting the Ribble House vaccination centre ready to open and I would like to thank them for their commitment and dedication.
Getting your first, second and booster vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 and I would encourage local people to book their vaccination, particularly given the current high rates of COVID-19.”
There are a wide range of clinics across the local area, providing booster services and first and second doses to eligible people aged 12+. Further details of who is eligible and when and where you can book your vaccine can be found at: www.healthierlsc.co.uk/getmyjab
