The opening of Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium as a vaccination centre was marked by the visit of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The centre, which opened on Monday 11 January, is one of seven mass vaccination centres across the UK. Once fully operational, it will be delivering thousands of vaccinations each day.
The Prime Minister was shown round the facility and spoke with healthcare professionals running the centre as well as local people receiving their first vaccine.
The Ashton Gate facility will continue to focus on vaccinating people over 80 as well as supporting the vaccination of front-line health and care staff.
While the opening of the vaccination centre means the NHS will be able to ramp up its vaccination efforts, it will still take some time to reach everyone who needs to be vaccinated. The NHS will be in touch when it is your turn.
