We have been given the go ahead to deliver the COVID 19 Booster vaccinations at the same time as Influenza Vaccines, this makes the process convenient and reduces your exposure and risk.
The order in which you are called by us will be dictated as it was for the original programme broadly:
People Over 65
Those who are at risk due to other condition
Health and Social care Workers
The booster will be given 26 weeks or more after your second vaccination.
The booster will be the Pfizer Biontech COVID 19 vaccine regardless of what your original vaccines were.
If there is a particular reason you can;t have Pfizer then the Astra Zeneca vaccine can be used.
We may need to use a half dose Moderna but this is unlikely.
Where possible we will offer you a COVID19 vaccination with your Influenza vaccination at the same time.
The vaccinations will be delivered either in the health centre or the Old Peoples club as before.
Where we administer vaccines:
The vaccinations are being delivered in the now renovated "Hovis Loaf" on Lord Street Burscough.
With support from our partners the Hall has been renovated, and when this terrible pandemic has been beaten Burscough will gain a fantastic renovated community facility and Estrella School of Dance will have a home once again.
