COVID-19 vaccine programme
The Council is working with our NHS partners in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
This is the largest vaccination programme the country has ever seen.
It is a huge challenge and we are working with our NHS partners to make sure it is delivered as quickly as possible to those who need it most.
Planning your COVID-19 vaccination journey
If you have been invited for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment in the borough and need to use public transport to get to your vaccination site, please view the latest timetable information.
Hyper-local COVID-19 vaccination clinics
Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) are providing hyper-local COVID-19 autumn booster vaccination clinics for the population of Tarporley, Tattenhall and Tarvin. Locations for upcoming clinics include:
- Tarporley Community Centre
- Tattenhall Barbour Institute
- Tarvin Community Centre
CWP are committed to ensuring all local residents in these areas have the option to receive their COVID-19 booster at a location convenient to them – and avoid anyone travelling out of area unnecessarily. Details of your invite will be sent via post at the earliest opportunity.
Vaccine Tracing Team
The Council’s Vaccine Tracing Team is contacting residents who are partially vaccinated or unvaccinated to find out if there are any barriers to accessing both information about the vaccine or vaccine clinics themselves.
The team is working with GPs in the borough to make contact with residents and find out what help they might need.
Find out about the vaccine, how well it works, how safe it is and how to get one on the NHS website.
Vaccine fraud alert
We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.
To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points:
- The vaccine is available for free on the NHS. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime.
- The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
- At the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine. Anyone offering this now is committing a crime.
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. Report any scams to Citizens Advice Consumer Service:
Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.
