OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER says that not all his players have been double jabbed against Covid-19 and nobody will be forced to have the vaccine.
A number of Manchester United players and staff have been hit with the virus at different times this summer.
Goalkeeper Dean Henderson is still struggling with long Covid nearly two months after getting the virus, and is training on his own.
But despite that boss Solskjaer says a double vaccination is not mandatory.
The Norwegian said: “Not all of the players have been double-jabbed.
“We are still wanting everyone to be double-jabbed.
“I have encouraged them to take the vaccination but you cannot force anyone to do that.”
Henderson, 24, has tested negative since getting Covid but the virus has left him drained.

He has returned to training but has felt unusually tired afterwards.
Henderson is continuing to try to build himself back up in the gym and on the Carrington training pitches, but is doing so away from the main group.
Solskjaer said: “The whole situation around Covid is unknown and new for everyone.
“People get it who are not as fit as footballers and show no symptoms. Footballers can then have after effects, side effects like tiredness.
“It’s a scary virus and you need to be careful.
“Dean has been feeling tired after training. He is feeling better and has passed all our tests, now he is just trying to build himself up because he has lost a few weeks.
“He is working hard in the gym and out on the grass. He is not involved in full team training yet but it will not be too long.”
