Councillor Paul Foster, Leader of South Ribble Borough Council, said: “Covid-19 is still here, and we all need to make sure we are fully vaccinated to ensure our best defence against the disease. 

“If you haven’t yet had a jab or are needing your second or booster dose, please do not delay. The NHS team and vaccination bus will be available on Friday and Saturday and no appointment is necessary so please come along and get your jab.”

The Covid-19 vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and others.

Research has shown the vaccines help:

  • reduce your risk of getting seriously ill or dying from Covid-19
  • reduce your risk of catching or spreading Covid-19
  • protect against Covid-19 variants
