The team running the York vaccination centre say they expect to have given all over-50s the jab by mid-April.
Nimbuscare, which runs both the national and local Covid-19 vaccination service at Askham Bar, also reassured people today that they are getting through the priority groups as fast as possible.
“We encourage everyone to book in for their Covid jab,” a Nimbuscare spokeswoman said.
“The NHS priority groups are changing week by week as we successfully vaccinate millions of people.
“We are on target to vaccinate everyone over 50 with their first dose by 15 April which is fantastic news.
“Both local and national services at the Vaccination Centre will be working hard towards this target and here in York we are getting through vaccines quickly.”
The national NHS booking system’s criteria is changing as the teama work through the priority groups.
Letters are now going out across the country to people aged 60 to 64 (priority group 7) inviting them to book their jabs.
“We ask people to go online and book via the nhs.uk website,” said the spokeswoman.
“The local service at Askham Bar, alongside our satellite GP clinics, are currently working hard to vaccinate people in priority group 6 – this includes people aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions,” she said.
Everyone on GP practice learning disability registers – around 300,000 people in England – has been added to priority group 6.
“We are working quickly to get through this group of patients – vaccinating thousands of people over the next few days. Invitations are being sent out by text message or by phone.”
