These will take place at either at a local pharmacy in Oldham or Greater Manchester’s regional vaccination centre at the Etihad Campus in east Manchester.
In Oldham, we have seen ongoing high rates of COVID-19 and our priority is to keep our young people safe.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be the best way to protect them from the negative effects of the virus whilst also helping to reduce it spreading to other people.
We understand that parents might have concerns around getting their child vaccinated which is completely normal. You can read more about why this programme is going ahead here:

If you are feeling overwhelmed or distressed by the decision or COVID-19, support is available.
