Covid-19 vaccinations at Preston College

All 16 and 17 year olds are now eligible to receive at least one dose of an approved covid-19 vaccine – some can even access two doses depending on personal circumstances. Many of our new and returning learners may have already taken advantage of one of the many vaccination centres locally, but if not, we have arranged for NHS Chorley and South Ribble to set up a pop up vaccination centre in the College on Monday 6th September 2021 between 9am and 5pm. Appointments will not be needed, and the operation will be run entirely by fully trained and qualified NHS professionals. The centre will be located close to our main reception.

We realise that not all of our learners will be due to attend on Monday, but this service will be available for all of our enrolled learners. If you would like to take up this opportunity, just pop in even if you are not timetabled to attend. Obviously this is a personal choice, and whilst parental consent is not required, you may wish to discuss this with parents or guardians. Information on the vaccination scheme will also be provided on the day by the NHS, so if you are unsure or have questions, this would be an ideal opportunity to find out more.
