Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group has ensured residents in a number of areas across the Borough have easy access to the COVID vaccination.
Kirkby, Page Moss and Stockbridge Village have been identified as having a lower uptake of the vaccine, so a COVID vaccination bus is visiting Kirkby and Page Moss. Arrangements are also being made for a drop-in clinic in Stockbridge Village.
There is no need to book an appointment. If you’re in an eligible group, you can just pop along to the bus and you will be given your vaccine there and then. However, you can only be vaccinated if you meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Aged 50+
- Clinically extremely vulnerable
- Have a learning disability
- Are a frontline health or care worker
- Are an unpaid carer
- Have a health condition which puts you at a higher risk of the virus
If you aren’t in one of these groups, please wait for the NHS to contact you when it’s your turn.
The vaccination bus will be visiting Old Rough Lane, Kirkby, L33 6XE (car park opposite Quarry Green shops) on Monday, 24 May and Tuesday, 25 May from 10am until 4pm.
The vaccination bus will be visiting Terminus Road, Page Moss, L36 2AB on Monday, 7 June and Tuesday, 8 June from 10am until 4pm.
For both locations, you will be contacted to return 10-12 weeks’ later for you to have your second dose.
Remember, no appointment is needed.
Huyton GP, Dr Paul Conway, said “The vaccination offers you the greatest protection from the virus. By providing vaccination clinics out in our communities, we hope to increase the uptake for the vaccine.
“I would urge anyone who has not yet been for their vaccine and meets the eligibility criteria to come along and get vaccinated.”
Arrangements for the Stockbridge Village drop-in clinic will be shared once details are confirmed.
The NHS is only using COVID-19 vaccines that are proven to be safe and offer the highest level of protection. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, visit the NHS website.
