The different variants of Covid-19 remind us that we all need to keep doing what we can to stay safe and avoid spreading the virus.Advertisement
A key step in our fight against it is the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme and ensuring all those eligible are vaccinated.
To help with this, another mobile vaccination clinic will be in Preston week commencing Monday 7th February.

The clinic will be available between 10am and 4pm, these convenient locations allow you to walk-in with no appointment required:
· Tuesday 8 February – Herschell Street (near Cardinal Newman College)
· Wednesday 9 February – Moor Nook Community Centre, Burholme Road, PR2 6HN
· Friday 11 February – Imperial Banquet Hall, off Fletcher Road, PR1 5LG
Other ways to control the spread of the virus is for everyone to continue to follow the simple steps of washing their hands, using a face covering and making space from each other.
The vaccine is our best chance to turn the tide against this awful virus and save lives. A lot of work is going on to tackle false information about the vaccine and remind people throughout our communities that it is safe and thoroughly tested.

Adrian Phillips, Chief Executive of Preston City Council, said: “Thanks to everyone’s hard work and mutual support in regular testing and getting their Covid-19 vaccines when invited. Preston has a very strong and attractive restaurant and hospitality sector with a busy high street and as we all visit bars, cafes, hairdressers and many other businesses it’s important that everyone takes up the offer of a vaccine when it’s their turn.
“I would encourage everyone who hasn’t already received a vaccine, or who is ready for their second or booster jabs, to visit this mobile clinic in Preston in order to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe.
“These locations add to the options people have to access the vaccine and we are grateful for the support the NHS and these community venues have given to help get this established and ready to increase vaccinations in the city.”
