Adrian Phillips, Chief Executive of Preston City Council, said: “Thanks to everyone’s hard work and mutual support in regular testing and getting their vaccines when invited.
“Preston has a very strong and attractive restaurant and hospitality sector with a busy high street. As we all visit bars, cafes, hairdressers and other businesses, it is important that everyone takes up the offer of a vaccine when it’s their turn.
“I would encourage everyone who has not already received a vaccine, or who is ready for their second or booster jabs, to visit this mobile clinic in Preston to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe.”

The council said a vital step is continuing the NHS vaccination programme and the best chance to turn the tide and save lives.
They said other ways to control the spread of the virus is for everyone to continue to follow the steps of washing hands, using a face covering and social distancing.
