A VACCINATION bus is due in Barnoldswick on Friday (June 24) to give residents an opportunity to get protected from Covid this summer.

The bus will be in the Co-op car park, Rainhall Road between 10am and 4pm.

It will be offering first, second and booster doses for everyone aged five years and over.

Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccinations will be available.

Parental consent will be needed for anyone under 15 years old.

Councillor Nadeem Ahmed, leader of Pendle Borough Council said: “Many people are making plans for the summer holidays.

“For some this is going abroad and for others it’s getting together with friends and family locally.

“To help everyone get ready for summer, the vaccination bus will be in Pendle a number of times in the coming weeks.

“There’s no need to book an appointment, you can just turn up between 10am and 4pm.”

The bus will also be visiting Colne, on July 8, and Nelson, on July 15.

A spokesperson for Pendle Council said: "As we learn to live safely with Covid-19, there are steps we can all take to help reduce the risk of catching the virus and passing it on to others.

* Try to stay at home if you’re unwell

* Meet outdoors where you can or let air in if you meet indoors

* Wear a face covering or face mask

* Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser regularly."
