Local pharmacies across Stockport are also offering Covid-19 vaccinations, bookable via the National Booking Service.

Jennifer Connolly, Director of Public Health, Stockport Council, said: “We’re experiencing very high rates of Covid across Stockport at the moment. Vaccination is the best way to protect ourselves from the most serious symptoms of Covid and it’s never too late to get any of your doses. Ahead of the autumn booster programme for over 50s and other eligible cohorts, please make sure you are up-to-date with vaccinations, then you will be ready for a booster in the autumn as we head into the winter virus season.”

Councillor Keith Holloway, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care, Stockport Council, said: “Covid-19 is still circulating in Stockport and the One Stockport Hub is in a convenient place in the town centre. If you are in one of the vulnerable eligible cohorts, get yourself a booster. I urge parents of 5 -11 year olds to get their children vaccinated during the summer holidays then they are well protected when the new academic year starts.”
