NHS Covid Street Team coming to Pendle

Published: Monday, 7th June 2021


A Cabinet Office outreach team will be in Pendle tomorrow (Tuesday 8 June) to get across key messages about Covid and staying safe to local people.

Councillor Nadeem Ahmed, Leader of Pendle Council, said: 

“The NHS Covid Street Team will flag up the extra capacity for Pfizer vaccinations and getting tested for Covid-19 that we currently have in Pendle.” 
The team of six will be easy to spot, wearing NHS branded high vis jackets and they will be based as ASDA Colne, BB8 8LU from 10am until 6pm.

Part of the team will visit neighbourhoods to talk to local residents about the importance of following Government guidance to protect against the spread of the virus.

The Street Team will alert people to the NHS mobile vaccination units in Pendle – including one at Morrisons Car Park in Nelson until Friday 11 June and another at TK Maxx Car Park in Colne until Sunday 13 June. 

“The Government has brought this team to Pendle to talk to local people about the surge vaccinations and testing which are taking place here,” explained Councillor Ahmed.

“As cases continue to rise in Pendle and the infection rate increases, it’s vital that
people come and get vaccinated to protect themselves and keep Pendle safe,” he stated. 

People age 18 and over in Pendle can get their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in Pendle and visit for details including eligibility or ring the NHS on 119. 

 “If you are unsure whether you are eligible, pop down and have a chat with the team,” said Councillor Ahmed.  

“And remember, you do not have to have symptoms to get tested for Covid-19 in Pendle and it’s quick and easy to get a test locally,” he added. 

Details, dates, times and places and how to book a test are on or ring the NHS on 119.
