Barnsley vaccine rollout


Barnsley’s vaccine rollout is making fantastic progress so far. Over 170,000 people have had their first dose of the vaccine, and over 150,000 have had both doses. This is around 8 in 10 people across Barnsley having had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The vaccine gives you the best protection from the virus, regardless of your age or health. If you haven’t already, here’s why you should get your vaccine:

  • To protect yourself, your loved ones and the wider community.
  • To reduce the risk of getting seriously ill, long term health problems or dying from the virus, even in young and healthy people.
  • To reduce your risk of catching and spreading COVID-19. Remember that being healthy doesn’t reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 or passing it on.
  • To travel to another country and to attend events in the UK.
  • To no longer have to self-isolate if you are a close contact that doesn’t have symptoms.

Anyone aged 16 and over can now get their vaccine. If you haven’t had the chance to get yours yet, there is still time!

  • Visit a walk-in clinic. No appointment is needed, and you don’t need to be registered with a GP.  Dates and times of local walk-in clinics are added regularly and can be found at
