Covid-19 cases are still high in St Helens, and we know that this is linked to the Delta variant which is around 60-80% more easily spread 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 around 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.
