The clinic will be open at West View Leisure Centre, Ribbleton Lane, PR1 5EP from December 2, 2020, from 9am to 5.30pm.

The clinic is run by Pharmacy2U, the UK’s largest online pharmacy, and vaccinations will be carried out by pharmacists by appointment only, with trained St John Ambulance first aiders providing support. All team members will be wearing the appropriate PPE and conform to the highest NHS and COVID-19 standards.

Phil Day, superintendent pharmacist at Pharmacy2U, said: “As we enter what could be a difficult winter for many, this is a much-needed service for people up and down the country. In a year that’s seen much devastating health news, we’ve worked extremely hard behind the scenes and through our partnership with St John Ambulance to be able to bring this offering to fruition to help our existing and new patients, and to help alleviate pressure from the NHS.”
