New initiative opens the door for more people to have vaccines at home

The NHS in Lancashire and South Cumbria has launched an initiative so that anyone who is shielding or doesn’t feel comfortable using the existing vaccine services can now book to be vaccinated in the comfort of their own home.

The initiative adds to the wide range of options available with the aim of offering a COVID-19 vaccine to as many residents as possible – you can simply book online at healthierlsc.co.uk/VacAtHome or by phoning 0300 790 6856 (between 10 am to 8 pm daily).

On completion of a quick questionnaire, someone from the vaccine programme outreach team will be in touch to arrange a convenient time to visit and administer the jab.

Jane Scattergood, Chief Nurse and Senior Responsible Officer for Lancashire and South Cumbria, said: “There is still a portion of our population who have not come forward for a COVID-19 vaccine or a booster yet, and we know for some of them it is because they are shielding or don’t want to leave their house. We will be there for them.

“It is essential that everyone is able to have access to a vaccine, and this new service helps us reach more people who have been unable to come forward until now.

“The new Omicron variant is spreading extremely quickly, so if you are eligible to have a vaccine – whether that is your booster or your first or second dose - please book one to make sure you have as much protection from the virus as possible.”
