Relentless work has been put into planning for the vaccination of thousands of people as soon as the supplies become available.
Where will I get vaccinated?
There are four types of vaccination sites operating at the moment: local vaccination centres which are run by GP practices through their primary care networks, hospital hubs which are focusing on health and care staff, larger vaccination centres, such as the one at Askham Bar near York, and pharmacy-led sites, such as the one at Knaresborough.
The local vaccination sites across North Yorkshire and York include:-
- The Forum, Northallerton
- Tennants Auction House, Leyburn
- The Pavillions, Harrogate
- Whitby Pavillion
- Scarborough Rugby Club
- Filey Surgery
- Derwent Practice, Malton
- Pickering Medical Practice
- Posterngate Surgery, Selby
- Tadcaster Health Centre
- Haxby Health Centre
- Nimbuscare Mass Vaccination Hub, Askham Bar
- Ripon Racecourse
The hospital hubs vaccinating in North Yorkshire and York are:-
- Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust
- York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (York and Scarborough)
Your vaccination site will be clearly indicated when you receive your invitation from the NHS for your vaccination appointment.
We also expect additional locations will be developed. Your vaccination site will be clearly indicated when you receive your invitation from the NHS for your vaccination appointment.
You will be contacted by the NHS and invited for a vaccine when the time comes. No-one will be left out. The invitation may be from your local GP surgery or a mass vaccination centre. You may receive an invitation from both – chose which is best for you. The nearest vaccination centre in our region is at York Askham Bar, Park and Ride. If you receive an invitation to Askham Bar you can choose to book an appointment there or, if this is not possible, you can wait to be invited to an appointment by your GP.
Please do not contact your GP Practice or local hospital to ask for an appointment for a vaccination and please do not turn up at your surgery or hospital – the NHS will proactively contact individuals as part of the vaccination programme, and nobody will miss out.
