Thousands more COVID-19 vaccination appointment slots are available now across Cheshire after capacity was doubled across the county in response to the Omicron variant.

An additional 30,000 booster jabs were administered in Cheshire last week – compared to the week before – with eligible residents encouraged to book ahead where possible via the National Booking Service (or by calling 119).

Clare Watson, Accountable Officer of NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: "We've worked swiftly to enable as many people as possible to get their COVID-19 booster vaccinations as quickly as possible – doubling our capacity in the space of a week.

"There has been a fantastic response from the people of Cheshire so far, who recognise the importance of protecting themselves and their families from COVID- 19 and the Omicron variant.

"If you're eligible, please book ahead where possible to get a timed appointment slot and avoid having to queue. There are lots of options this week and next and dozens of sites to choose from."
