Residents urged to come forward now for COVID-19 vaccination


With less than two weeks to go until the final planned lockdown easing in England, Cheshire health and care partners are urging everyone aged 18 and over to come forward now to get their COVID-19 jab.

Anyone who is aged 18-39 or due a second Pfizer jab can now simply walk-in to receive their jabs at the regional vaccination centre at Alderley Park Conference Centre.

While no appointment is needed, anyone aged 18 or over can also book their vaccination appointments online at: or by calling 119.

If there is no local availability showing on the booking system, and it is not convenient for you to travel, please keep checking back as local slots update all the time. Call 119 if you need further assistance.

Cheshire's COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Lead Tracey Cole said: "Vaccination remains our strongest weapon in the battle against Coronavirus (COVID-19) so please come forward if you are eligible and ensure you get both doses. It is never too late to come forward to be vaccinated."

Vaccination is generally essential. Also, we need to know how many people have contracted Covid while they have been self-isolating. Am I the only person who thinks that Covid may possibly be spread by means additional to that of person to person ? If sewer rats became infected with Covid, could they shed the virus into the atmosphere via trickle filtration beds ?

On 3rd January 2021, the government website showed 44 confirmed cases of Covid in Lacey Green which is about a quarter of a mile from a sewage works.

I have brought this to the attention of Sir Patrick Vallance but have not received a reply.

Could some residents of Lacey Green comment on this possibility please ?
