Ulverston's vaccination centre will be relocating as from Monday 25th October and will now be based at Gill Rise, which can be accessed from Ulverston Health Centre car park on Stanley Street.

Dee Houghton, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Bay NHS Foundation Trust, which has been staffing the GSK vaccination centre, alongside volunteers said: "We'd like to extend our profound thanks to GSK for their incredible support of the vital vaccination roll-out programme. Thanks to them, we have been able to administer over 46.000 first or second doses of vaccinations quickly and safely.

"We will continue to offer the same great service at Gill Rise, which will be open for bookings from 8am on Monday 25 October and look forward to welcoming the community to this new facility.

"Members of the public should remember that the new site is not a 'walk-in' service and you must have an appointment before you attend. You should also make sure you are wearing a surgical mask for your appointment so that we can minimise the spread of infection. "

But don’t worry if you have already booked to attend the GSK site as you will be invited to attend the vaccination site at Gill Rise. Patients registered with the Mid-Furness Primary Care Network will be invited to receive their vaccination by their GP, as they were at the start of the vaccination programme.

To book your vaccinations at Rise Gill, including your booster please call 119 or book via the National Booking System website.

Overall, across Morecambe Bay there have been almost 500,000 vaccinations administered by a combination of GP practices, volunteers, UHMBT staff, alongside specialist services delivered to supported accommodation and residential or nursing homes. We think that’s a fantastic achievement – thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen.
