Vaccinations are to be paused for parts of the population from the end of the month. First doses of the vaccines for the general population aged 50 and under will be put on hold from April due to the impending vaccine shortages set to hit the United Kingdom.
The pausing of the programme is in order to guarantee second dose appointments can be guaranteed in the county, with more than more than 683,000 people having had the jab in the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS region.
Dr Sakthi Karunanithi, director of public health for Lancashire County Council, confirmed the pausing of the programme for first doses of Covid-19 vaccines across the county. But in stating this, he urged people to keep coming forward while appointments are available, with bookings still open until the end of March.
