More opportunities to get your booster

17/12/21

People are being urged to get their booster jabs to protect themselves from Omicron as Bolton ramps up its vaccination programme.

There are now even more opportunities to get vaccinated with walk-in clinics running right up until Christmas Eve – including Bolton’s first 24-hour vaccination clinic!

Many sites have extended their opening hours in response to the Government’s announcement that all over-18s can now get a booster three months after their second dose.

Cohens Chemist will be vaccinating people straight through the day and night next Thursday, December 23 from 6am to 6am on Friday, December 24 at Nautica House, next to Waters Meeting Health Centre.

They will then continue vaccinating on Christmas Eve from 10am to 6.30pm.

This will be in addition to clinics at Nautica House from Monday, December 20 to Wednesday, December 22.

Other additional pop-up clinics have been organised, and the vaccination bus will be vising Bolton Market, Bolton Interchange and Asda Farnworth.

In addition, 12-15 year olds can now get their second jab at walk-in clinics at Market Place Shopping Centre, Horwich RMI, and Hootons at Bolton Wanderers Football Club. It must be at least 12 weeks since their first dose and they need to be accompanied by a parent/carer to give consent.

Dr Helen Wall, senior responsible officer for the vaccination programme in Bolton, said that she was proud of how the borough’s vaccination sites had responded.

She added: “More than 84,000 people in Bolton are now eligible for their booster; it’s a massive undertaking but I’m not surprised at how our teams have risen to the challenge.

“We have just marked the anniversary of the first Covid-19 vaccination in Bolton. A year ago, I was proud of how Bolton came together to mobilise the biggest vaccination programme in the borough’s history.

“Once again, staff, volunteers and our partners are showing that same determination. Sites across the borough have increased their days and times to offer everyone their booster before Christmas – including Bolton’s very first 24-hour clinic!

“Please come forward if you are aged 18 and over and you need your booster, as long as it’s been three months since your second dose. There’s plenty of walk-in options across the borough.

“Please also get your first or second dose if you’ve not already done so. It’s never too late.”

Vaccination sites are also appealing for volunteers to help meet the increased demand. To register your interest call the vaccination hotline on: 01204 462125, 462157, 462028. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm.

Dr Wall added: “Right from day one, we couldn’t have done this without the invaluable work of our fantastic volunteers who give up their time.

“Now, more than ever, we need your support so please do get in touch if you think you could help at our sites.”
