Covid-19 Vaccination Update Posted on 21 Jul 2022

As has been publicised, the Vaccination Centre at the Yorkshire Event Centre/Showground will be closing this weekend.

We would like to extend our huge gratitude to all the local GP practices, Yorkshire Health Network and volunteersinvolved in setting up and running the centre over the past 6 months. The vaccine uptake across the region has been fantastic.  Thank you to our patients for their willingness to come forward for vaccination and their patience in waiting for their invitations to arrive. Clinics will continue to run at Ripon Racecourse over the coming weeksfor 2nd doses only.

The national vaccination programme is ongoing. We would encourage everyone to get their vaccine when they are invited. There is ever increasing evidence that the available vaccines are effective at reducing the chance of severe disease, hospital Admission and death from Covid-19, including the newer variants.
