More vaccination sites added to Stockport’s Covid vaccination programme

New sites are now open for Stockport residents to get their vaccinations.

Three new Covid-19 vaccination sites are now live in Stockport. Boots Chemist at Merseyway, Boots Chemist in Handforth Dean and Medichem Pharmacy at Woodley Precinct are now offering vaccination appointments to anyone aged 30 and over, health and care workers, unpaid carers and those with underlying health conditions.

They will be joined by a fourth site, operated by Well Pharmacy, at Hazel Grove Civic Hall, on Tuesday, 2 June, 2021.

The new sites join Scorah Chemist whose site at Brookdale Club and Theatre went live last week as the national vaccine programme, the biggest and fastest in NHS history, continues at pace.

It is essential to book an appointment in advance which can be done online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 for free, seven days a week, between 7am and 11pm.

Dr Cath Briggs, Chair of Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “This is great news for the vaccination programme in Stockport. We are delighted that more options are now available for people to book their vaccinations when they are eligible.

“It is the second dose of the vaccine which will offer the maximum protection so I also encourage anyone who has been invited for theirs to book it straight away.”
