NHS TEAMS across the North East and Yorkshire have already vaccinated more than 300,000 people with a spring Covid dose since the campaign formally launched outside of care homes last month. NHS staff have been going into older adult care homes to offer residents the vaccine since April 3, while everyone else who is eligible has been able to book a vaccine appointment from April17. This includes people aged 75 and over, or anyone with a weakened immune system. 

Nationally, the biggest and fastest vaccination programme in NHS history has now vaccinated over two million people with a spring Covid vaccination. Latest figures show 302,900 eligible people in the North East and Yorkshire have received their spring Covid dose, and three-quarters of care homes have been visited by NHS vaccination teams.

EAST RIDING Council’s Active Coast team has put together a programme of activities for the May half-term, including beach and land yoga sessions; sand and stone art workshops, cricket and multi sports sessions, fossil hunts, circular walks, creative photography and coastal explorer sessions.
