A coronavirus NHS team will be coming to Fylde on Friday July 2nd to share advice, information and support with local residents.

The team will be stationed on the promenade in St Annes to answer questions, give advice and talk to people about testing, vaccinations and staying safe.

The visit is part of additional Government support measures in place across Lancashire.

The team will have testing kits to hand out, along with information about the testing and vaccinations.

To stem the current rise in infection rates, they will be reminding people of the importance of getting tested regularly – even if they don’t have symptoms.

Fylde Council’s mobile testing unit will also be stationed on the Fylde Council public offices car park, across from M&S, for people to get a free test – no appointment is necessary.

Councillor Karen Buckley, Leader of Fylde Borough Council, explains: “The highly trained team will be talking to people to ensure that our community is getting all the right, up-to-date information about COVID-19 vaccination and testing.

“We’re keen to dispel some of the myths surrounding the vaccine and urge people to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.

“The team will be able to signpost people to the nearest location of where they can get a test and where they can get their first or second doses of all the different types of vaccines.

“We are constantly adding to our testing capacity in order to continue to find and isolate cases of COVID-19 and stop the spread of the virus.”
