Jane Scattergood, senior responsible officer for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Covid-19 Vaccination Programme, said: “The NHS is working closely with all its partners on a rapid response to the new omicron variant of the virus in order to protect our local residents.

“We have plenty of vaccine for everyone and have made it as easy as possible for them to come forward to be vaccinated.

“A huge thank you to all of our staff and partners who are working hard on the delivery of this next phase of the vaccination programme and are helping to protect our residents and their loved ones.”

Caroline Donovan, chief executive at Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our team here has done an extraordinary amount of work in the past week getting the Ribble House vaccination centre ready to open and I would like to thank them for their commitment and dedication.

“Getting your first, second and booster vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and others against Covid-19 and I would encourage local people to book their vaccination, particularly given the current high rates of Covid-19.”
