RESIDENTS of Lymm who are eligible for the coronavirus vaccine are being encouraged to receive it through a pop-up clinic.

The town’s vaccination team is on the road again and will be visiting Lymm tomorrow afternoon, Tuesday.

Jabs will be given on a first come, first served basis during the session at Safety Central on Cliff Lane between 4pm and 7pm.

To avoid any vaccine wastage, vaccines are available to anyone aged 18 or over who has not already had their first Covid jab.

Anyone who receives their jab on the day will be offered an appointment for their second vaccination at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub.

Dr Laura Mount, Warrington GP and clinical director of the Central and West Warrington Primary Care Network, said: “Our friendly team of vaccinators, clinic co-ordinators and volunteers will be administering first doses of the COVID vaccine at Safety Central in Lymm to anyone aged 18 or over.

“We want to make it as easy and convenient as possible for people in Warrington to get their jab, so are working with a range of partners, like Cheshire Fire and Rescue on this occasion, to source appropriate venues to run community drop-in clinics.

“By taking vaccines out into local communities, we can administer jabs safely and efficiently to people who haven’t been able to visit one of the local vaccination sites.”

Those thinking of attending are being warned that the session might end early if all vaccines have been administered, with there also being the possibility of queuing.

Anyone who attends the vaccination session will also have the option of getting health and lifestyle information from LiveWire’s Lifestyles Team.

This will include advice on weight management, blood pressure, stopping smoking, health walks, and getting back into exercise.

Thara Raj, Warrington’s director of public health, added: “We are delighted to be working with the NHS to help get as many people as possible vaccinated in Warrington.

“The vaccine programme has been a great success so far and we are entering the final phase as younger people are now being invited to get their jabs.

“The range of settings that the vaccine has been delivered is testament to the collaborative, whole-system approach in Warrington, and these community drop-in sessions are another great example of this.

“I would urge everyone to get their jab as soon as they are able to, alongside remembering the basics of hands, face, space, and fresh air, and regular community testing. It is our best defence against the virus.”

If you wish to receive your jab, please bring your NHS number with you. If you do not know your NHS number, you can find it on any appointment letter you may have received from the NHS, or you can find it online at
