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 booster vaccine by the end of the year.

Caroline Donovan, Chief Executive at Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted to be able to support the national 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.”
