TWO pop-up vaccine clinics will be running at mosques in Oxford for anyone who qualifies, not just the Muslim community.

Anyone in the current vaccination age bracket does not need to make an appointment, they can just turn up as long as they meet the criteria.

The first pop-up will take place on Wednesday, 10am - 12.30pm at The Madina Mosque, and the second on Thursday, 10am -12.30pm at Central Oxford Mosque.

Oxford City Council has been working with NHS Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group to encourage Covid-19 vaccine uptake in ethnic minority communities.

A spokesperson for the council said: "We have been working with the mosques and the NHS to organise these clinics as one of the many ways we are working with Black, Asian and other communities in Oxford to address their hesitancy about getting vaccinated.

"By providing the walk-in clinics in a familiar and accessible environment, with staff who speak the languages of the mosque’s congregation, we aim to offer reassurance to those who may be unsure about getting a vaccine.

"We also aim to send a positive message about getting vaccinated to the wider Muslim and Asian communities, not just for those who can attend these clinics."
