The Coronavirus vaccine has been approved as safe and effective and the first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started within some hospitals.
Vaccination will soon begin in key locations in Wigan Borough, starting with those people aged over 80.
When it is the right time people will receive an invitation to come forward. You do not need to contact anyone at this stage to book your vaccine. This may be through a telephone call or letter.
People over the age of 80 are being prioritised for the vaccine at this time. For more information on how groups are being prioritised, please click here.
More information on the vaccine can be found below and also on the NHS.uk website.
