Julie Ashurst, Director of Primary Care and Transformation at St Helens CCG, said:

“Covid-19 cases are still rapidly increasing in St Helens, and we know that this is linked to the Delta variant of concern, first identified in India, which is easier to spread - we think around 60-80% more easily than previous strains.

“Because of this we really want to make sure as many of our residents as possible are protected.  We know vaccination, especially both doses, is making a difference to hospitalisations and how poorly people become

“Vaccination uptake in St Helens has been good but there are still more than 20% of our eligible population who haven’t taken up the offer so far.  We hope that by making clinics more accessible and taking it into the heart of communities, people who so far haven’t had their first dose will be persuaded to come and see us and get jabbed.

People who can attend drop in sessions are as follows:

  • Everyone over 18
  • Carers over 16 (you don’t have to be a registered carer, simply someone that has caring responsibilities for a vulnerable person)
  • Anyone with an underlying health condition over the age of 16
  • People who have already had their first dose, and are due a second (you can bring your first dose forward from 12 weeks to 8).

The Mass Vaccination Site at Saints run by St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust remains open seven days a week and bookable for all those eligible for a vaccine.

Appointments at Saints as well as the local pharmacy sites are also bookable as follows:
