The Lancashire Resilience Forum has reassured residents it has more than enough vaccines to for all of the county’s most vulnerable people to be vaccinated by February 15.
Lancashire is leading the way with more people per head getting the vaccine than anywhere else in the North West. Nearly 90 per cent of all over-80s have had the jab in the county.
The Government wants all people in the top four cohorts – the clinically vulnerable and all those aged over 70 – to have been vaccinated by February 15, a huge step towards allowing schools and businesses to reopen.
Those in the top four categories are most at risk from Covid-19, and most likely to be hospitalised by the virus for a lengthy period of time.
Angie Ridgwell, chair of the Lancashire Resilience Forum, said: "If you get invited to have the jab, please be assured that there will be a needle with your name on it.
"The roll out of the vaccine in Lancashire has been phenomenal and that's down to the hard work of our local NHS working closely with other public bodies along with the enthusiastic response of the Lancashire people who have been offered it so far.
"When you are contacted by the NHS to get the jab, please make sure you attend your appointment. You will get a warm welcome from our dedicated NHS staff and volunteers. And of course getting the jab will help you and others."
The NHS has assured the LRF that all residents in the top four priority areas will be offered the jab by mid-February.
