Over half a million people in North Yorkshire have now received a first dose of a COVID vaccine and health bosses say good progress is being made with second doses.

The vaccine doses have been give at a number of sites across the county in recent months including at Scarborough Rugby Club and Whitby Pavilion.

Some doses have been delivered via the local GP lead service while others have been given at sites run by the department of health.

Amanda Bloor from the NHS in North Yorkshire says the numbers are good news as the county heads towards the expected ending of lockdown restrictions.

Over 379,000 people in North Yorkshire have now had both jabs and Amanda Bloor says with more age groups now being invited for vaccination the county is on track to hit its deadline for vaccinating the entire adult population by the end of July.
