People all over Bolton who are eligible have been told “it’s not too late” to get their Covid vaccines this winder.

Nearly four years on from the start of the pandemic, Covid vaccines are still available for people, especially for those who are vulnerable.

Bolton Council cabinet member for adults, health and wellbeing Cllr Linda Thomas has urged people to make use of the borough’s walk-in centres and says more will be opening soon.

She said: “It’s still really important to get the Covid vaccine, especially for people with specific health conditions and other vulnerable groups.

“It’s not too late to get vaccinated, so if you are eligible, please get the jab while you can.”

Bolton was one of the worst hit areas in the country during the height of the pandemic and was one of the first borough’s to be subjected to a “local lockdown” in 2020.
