Lanky the Giraffe bowls one out for the squad by having his first Covid jab!

Not caught out! Lanky the Giraffe has become the latest Trafford resident to get his Covid jab.

Covid vaccines are now available for ages 18 and over

Lanky the Giraffe, Lancashire Cricket Club’s official club mascot, has taken time out from training at Emirates Old Trafford to take advantage of new guidance that now anyone aged 18 or over can receive a Covid-19 vaccine.

Our staff were on hand and ready to take care of this famous lofty legend who received his first jab in record time. Now Lanky can safely return to the cricket ground, knowing that his chance of catching the virus and passing it on has been significantly lowered.

Howzat! Lanky the Giraffe – Lancashire Cricket Club’s official club mascot – has become the latest Trafford resident to get his Covid jab.

Lanky will return to us for his second vaccine in eight weeks, so he has maximum protection against Covid.

“Well done to Lanky for having his Covid jab; we're very proud of you. As we move towards the end of Covid restrictions, we would urge all adults in Trafford to follow in Lanky’s footsteps by having their vaccination now. Sadly we are now seeing an increase in Covid cases in Trafford. Vaccination will help us bring this pandemic to an end. People must say yes to their vaccine for their own health and that of their friends and family. Please also make sure you take your second dose as two vaccines offer maximum protection.”
