Pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinics are coming to Rawtenstall and Haslingden, bringing vaccines closer to people living in those areas.
Giving people the first dose of the Pfizer vaccines, these temporary facilities make getting a jab easier and more convenient, with clinicians on hand to answer questions and address any concerns people might have.
They are open to anyone eligible aged 18 and over. If you are unsure if you are eligible, please come down and speak to the team. Don’t assume you and your wider family are not eligible without speaking to us first.
You don’t need an appointment, just walk-in:
· Town Centre Square, Rawtenstall – Saturday, June 5th – 10am to 4pm
· Salem Street car park, Haslingden – Tuesday, June 8th – 10am to 4pm
Jane Scattergood, Covid-19 Vaccination Director for Lancashire and South Cumbria, said: “These pop-up vaccination sites mean people have more opportunities to get their vaccination at a time and place that suits them. As long as you are eligible, please come forward.
“I also want to again say a huge thank you to all our staff and partners who are working hard on the delivery of the vaccination programme.”
Neil Shaw, Chief Executive at Rossendale Council said: ”It’s great that people can turn up without an appointment and get vaccinated in Rossendale and we’d encourage people to come down and check they are eligible.
“We want to make sure that we’re doing as much as possible in Rossendale to control the virus and by making vaccination sites such as these available as well as increased testing will help us achieve that.”
