Our large vaccination sites have been extremely busy over the past week which has resulted in queues outside Blackburn Cathedral over the weekend and at the beginning of this week. We are very sorry to those who had to wait for a long time to be vaccinated, this isn’t good enough and we want to reassure people this has improved.
We are working really hard to improve the experience of our patients attending all of our vaccination centres. We have put additional facilities on at the Blackburn Cathedral site and are pleased to say that the process is now much quicker. We would like to thank all of our partners and the Blackburn Cathedral team who are all helping to support our vaccination programme.
This vaccination service has been set up at pace and staff are working exceptionally hard to vaccinate people as swiftly as possible, we want people to have an excellent and quick experience and do not expect this to be an issue moving forward.
We would like to reassure people who are attending their Covid vaccination appointments that our sites are safe and follow social distance guidelines. It’s important that you attend your appointment on time. The vaccine is absolutely instrumental in our fight against Covid and the devastating effects it is having in our communities.
