Local vaccination services in place across Lancashire and South Cumbria

6th January 2021

More sites are starting to take delivery of the coronavirus vaccine this week as the rollout continues to more areas of Lancashire and South Cumbria. This brings the total of local vaccination sites, run by family doctors and their teams, to 32 across Lancashire and South Cumbria in addition to six hospital hub sites.  

Thanks to an incredible amount of hard work from local teams across primary and secondary care, with support across the partnership, the first people in our local communities – those who experts have said will benefit most, like over-80s and care home staff – have started to receive the Covid-19 vaccination in hospital hubs and in local vaccination centres, run by family doctors and their teams.

Nurses, paramedics, pharmacists and other NHS staff are working alongside GPs to vaccinate those aged 80 and over, as well as care home workers and residents, identified as priority groups for the life-saving vaccine.

It is important that you do not contact your GP practice to request to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact people in the priority groups when it is their turn to receive the vaccine.
