More than 10,000 people have received a dose of the Covid vaccine in York.

The news was released by Citywide Health, which runs seven pharmacies across the city.

The mass vaccination site on the former park and ride at Askham Bar has vaccinated 6,000 patients.

Meanwhile the primary care network has vaccinated 4,500 patients at the Haxby Group practice.

On their Facebook page, Citywide Health said: “York has now delivered a first Covid vaccination to over 50% of over-80s and care home residents and staff.

“Practices are working through patient lists and booking appointments for those over 80. Practices will be offering the vaccine to the remaining 50%, which should happen over the next two weeks.

“Your GP surgery will contact you with your appointment, so there’s no need to call them.”
