Two further pharmacy-led COVID-19 vaccination sites go live in Cheshire
25 January 2021
Delivery of lifesaving COVID-19 jabs has begun at pharmacies in Crewe and Alsager as the NHS accelerates the biggest vaccination programme in its history.
These new venues will support efforts to get the vaccine out to those in high-risk groups, as quickly as possible.
Hollowood Pharmacy on West Street in Crewe and Alsager Pharmacy on Lawton Road have joined Andrew's Pharmacy in Macclesfield in taking part in the COVID-19 vaccination drive.
People will be contacted when it is their turn to be vaccinated.
In line with national guidance, the new pharmacy sites will initially be offering the vaccine to residents in care homes, those aged over 80 and frontline health and social care workers alongside those who are clinically extremely vulnerable.
With good progress being made across these groups, the focus is now beginning to shift to people aged 70 and over.
