Residents are asked to get their Covid-19 vaccines and take the number from the current 26,607.

Latest figures show that 27,657 people have now had their first dose of the vaccine, and 98,950 residents are now double-vaccinated.

Clinics run everyday, mostly without need for appointment, for over 18s in Bury.

The clinics offer first and second doses of both the Pfizer and AZ vaccines - for the latest list, visit

While lockdown measures lift on Monday July 19, residents are urged to be cautious to reduce risk of transmission.

Bury director of public health, Lesley Jones, said: "The infection rate in Bury is still far too high, and we don't know how much pressure this is going to put on the NHS or how many people will become seriously ill with the virus.

"While it will no longer be a legal requirement to wear face masks or maintain social distancing, we are calling on Bury people to do the following: keep washing your hands regularly, take part in 'track and trace' and self-isolate if you test positive.

"Also, meet outdoors when you can, and continue to wear face coverings in high-risk settings such as public transport, shops and health centres."

She added: "The vaccination programme has been a huge success, but we need to keep up the momentum: thousands of people, particularly young people, have not had their jabs yet.

"We urge them to go along to one of our many walk-in clinics and get vaccinated - and remember to return for your second dose in order to get the full protection."
