A number of pop-up vaccination centres have opened in East Lancashire as Blackburn with Darwen remains to have the highest infection rate in the country.

Due to the Delta variant taking hold in areas of the North West, with the highest Covid-19 rates in Blackburn with Darwen, the area has been given surge vaccinations which has led to a number of pop-up vaccination centres in the borough.

The more permanent pop-up vaccination centres can be booked online while the day centres are available as a walk-in vaccination hub. 

Permanent vaccination centres have been established in Pennine Lancashire including a mass vaccination centre at Blackburn Cathedral and two hospital hubs at Royal Blackburn Hospital and Burnley General Hospital.

As well as this, there are a number of pharmacy vaccine centres and GP led centres which can all be booked on the NHS website.

Yesterday (June 7), a temporary vaccination clinic opened at Masjid-e-Saliheen Mosque on Didsbury Street, which will be open daily from 8am to 8pm until Saturday June 19.

A vaccination bus will be driving to different areas of East Lancashire during the week, visiting Burnley, Clitheroe and Barnoldswick.
