A mobile vaccination centre has been set up at Myerscough College’s main Bilsborrow campus to offer further Covid-19 protection to students and staff.
It comes as part of a drive to encourage more of the Myerscough family to get vaccinated amid the ongoing pandemic, and to further ensure not only are staff and students stay safe, but also the College can remain as fully operational as possible.
The NHS vaccination facility was able to provide both first and second doses of the Pfizer jab.
Chief Executive and Principal, Alison Robinson, said: ‘’This is really important timing as Lancashire has seen a large increase in cases recently. This makes our own ongoing strategy (to fight Covid-19) of face coverings, distancing and ventilation so important. We need to do all we can to protect ourselves, our staff, students, families and our community.
‘’It’s been a great start to term. Students seem to be very happy and relaxed and there is a lovely buzz of excitement across our centres once again. This will further help things to stay like that.’’
