Askham Bar vaccination centre upgraded to new national vaccination hub for region

January 15, 2021

I am delighted to hear that the Askham Bar vaccination site is being expanded to become a national vaccination centre, which shows the importance that is attached to ensuring a swift and comprehensive rollout of the vaccine to the medically vulnerable in our city and surrounding area.

Although it is a long and hard road yet, every injection is a step on the path back towards normality, and the news that the new national centre will provide capacity for an additional 8,000 vaccinations in the first phase of the upgrade is very welcome.

Over 3.2 million people have now received the first dose of the vaccine nationwide. 12,000 York residents have already been covered, with all local care home residents set to have received the vaccine by early next week, showing we are making solid progress.
