The NHS COVID-19 vaccination bus will be visiting Page Moss and a pop-up clinic will take place in Stockbridge Village to help make the vaccine accessible to more residents.
Vaccine data has highlighted areas where uptake is low and so the bus will be visiting these locations to ensure no one misses out on their vaccine.
The bus was a huge success on its recent visit to Kirkby with 237 people receiving their vaccination.
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
You should not visit the bus or clinic if you do not fall into one of the above. If you aren’t in one of these groups, the NHS will contact you when it’s your turn.
The clinics will be taking place on:
Page Moss on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 June from 10am to 4pm. The bus will be located at Terminus Way, L36 2AB
Stockbridge Village Health Centre on Saturday 12 June from 9.30am to 2pm. L28 1ST
The bus has been provided by bus operator Arriva free of charge.
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.
