From today (Monday 7th June) an additional pop-up coronavirus vaccination walk-in clinic is opening in Blackburn, bringing vaccines closer to people living in the borough.
The clinic will be based at the Masjid-e-Saliheen Mosque on Didsbury Street every day from 8am to 8pm until Saturday 19th June. Giving people the first dose of the Pfizer vaccines, this temporary facility makes getting a jab easier and more convenient, with clinicians on hand to answer questions and address any concerns people might have.
It is open to anyone aged 18 and over, subject to eligibility. If you are unsure if you are eligible, please come down and speak to the team. Don’t assume you and your wider family are not eligible without speaking to us first.
You don’t need an appointment, just walk-in.
Jane Scattergood, Covid-19 Vaccination Director for Lancashire and South Cumbria, said: “These pop-up vaccination sites mean people have more opportunities to get their vaccination at a time and place that suits them. As soon as you are eligible, please do come forward.
“I also want to again say a huge thank you to all our staff and partners who are working hard on the delivery of the vaccination programme.”
