Preston Grasshoppers confirmed earlier today they will be offering a ‘walk in’ vaccination service for anyone yet to have the jab.


The team at the Rugby Football Club informed Blog Preston during Wednesday (12 May) afternoon: “The vaccination centre have been offering walk ins. It’s currently extremely busy.”

The centre offering the vaccinations is located on Lightfoot Green Lane. It is managed and staffed by Broadway Pharmacy, operating from 8am to 8pm seven days a week.

There are understood to be around 400 vaccinations, all Pfizer jabs, available.

(Update)- The clinic has since reached capacity and will no longer be offering walk-in vaccinations. Lancashire Vaccination Centre has released the following statement:

“I’m afraid due to a significant uptake this morning, we have now had to cancel the walk in clinic for the COVID vaccine at our vaccination site at Preston grasshoppers rugby club. Any pre booked appointments should still to attend. We apologise for any disruption or disappointment caused.”

To find out more, visit the Lancashire Vaccination Centres website.
