Local Coronavirus Update

January 28, 2021

In North Yorkshire and York, more than 126,000 of our most vulnerable residents, those aged over 80 and in care homes as well as care home staff, have now been vaccinated – one sixth of the population.

Residents and staff in all of the county’s 235 residential care settings, apart from those settings with outbreaks and individuals with COVID or recovering from the virus, have been offered the vaccine.

In York, nearly all of our over 80’s have now been given their first vaccination so now those in the next priority group – 70-79 year olds – are being invited to receive their vaccine.

Last weekend, almost 4,000 people received a jab at the Askham Bar vaccination centre, which is a record amount.

There has been some recent concern, due to misleading headlines, regarding our local supply of the vaccine. I wish to reassure all residents that I am monitoring this situation closely and have been reassured that 364,000 doses were supplied to Yorkshire and the North East last week with subsequent deliveries expected to be 300,000 doses this week then 350,000 the week after. While the raw figures fluctuate, this remains 13% of national supply so proportionally Yorkshire is still receiving the same amount of vaccines.
