Anyone aged 12 and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Some children aged 5 to 11, who are at serious risk of complications of Covid-19, are currently being offered a 1st and 2nd dose of the vaccine. Each vaccine is a third of the dose of vaccine that is given to older children and adults.  Your child will need two injections of the vaccine usually eight weeks apart.

You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS. If you did not book when you were initially contacted, you're still eligible and can book your appointments anytime.

There are multiple vaccination sites across Lancashire which are bookable via the National Booking System or by calling 119. You can also use this link if you have already had your first vaccine and need to book your second.

First and second doses are also available at various vaccination sites managed by Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria. These appointments are not available on the National Booking System and can only be booked via this link

Flu can be serious and even deadly for older adults, very young children, and people with underlying health conditions. The flu vaccine is the best protection for you and those around you. That’s why it’s free to those most at risk. 

Ask your pharmacist or GP if you’re eligible for a free flu vaccine. If you’re eligible, make sure you get your free flu vaccination to protect yourself and those around you from the flu virus. If you've had Covid-19, it's safe to have the flu vaccine. It will still be effective at helping to prevent flu.

Flu and Coronavirus

Some people may be eligible for both the flu and the Covid-19 booster vaccines this winter. If you are offered both vaccines, it's safe to have them at the same time.
