Pictures have been released of the new vaccination centre that is set to open in Cumbria.
The centre will open at Penrith Auction Mart today. NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group said the take-up of the vaccine has been strong, with nine out of 10 people aged 65 or over being immunised so far.
Nine out of ten older care home residents, and large numbers of frontline health and care staff, people
over 65, as well as adults with long term health conditions, all receiving their first vaccine.
The trust says it is well on track to reach the national targets of vaccinating all over 50s by the middle of April and all adults by the end of July.
In North Cumbria, about 140,000 vaccinations have been administered. This has been mainly through eight primary care networks vaccinating from 9 hubs run by local GP practices, alongside hospitals hubs and community pharmacy.
The Penrith Vaccination site will be known as the Penrith Auction Mart Vaccination Centre Skirsgill Lane, Penrith.
