It is now possible for people aged 16 and over in Pendle to get their first dose of the vaccine and young people are being urged to get vaccinated.

Anyone who missed getting vaccinated when it was first offered to them is being encouraged to take up the vaccine to help protect them and others against the virus.

In Pendle the vaccination take-up rate has increased slightly. 76.4% of adults have now had their first dose and 66.3% have had their second dose.

Pendle Council is urging anyone who is seeing friends and family this Bank Holiday weekend to meet outdoors where possible to help stop the virus from spreading.
