The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unequal impact on populations in the UK, with Greater Manchester experiencing disproportionally high virus-related morbidity and mortality. Although the COVID-19 vaccination programme has been hugely impactful, uptake of the vaccines has varied across Greater Manchester communities and neighbourhoods. The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester and Health Innovation Manchester (the Academic Health Science Network for Greater Manchester and East Cheshire) are working with a range of Greater Manchester Partners to explore vaccination activities undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Faith-based groups, voluntary organisations and charities have made huge contributions to vaccination related activities in Greater Manchester and we would like to capture some brief information on the groups involved in recent vaccination activities. This will help us understand and document the range of organisations involved and activities that have been undertaken. This research and information will be used alongside other information to explore more opportunities for targeted vaccination activities and produce actionable guidance for all types of vaccination programmes delivered now and in the future across Greater Manchester.
