Health teams have vaccinated 20,000 people in South Lincolnshire
A total of 20,000 people in South Lincolnshire have been vaccinated against coronavirus thanks to practice staff.
Clinical and clerical staff from 12 medical centres in Bourne, Market Deeping and Spalding have been working together to vaccinate patients at Springfields Exhibition and Event Centre in Spalding, in recent weeks.
Allied Health South Lincolnshire, which has helped to organise the vaccination centre, thanked staff and volunteers who worked all weekend to help them to meet the government's targets.
The Government is aiming for 15m vaccinations to have been carried out by February 15, covering those over the age of 70 and those who who are most vulnerable due to their occupation or health.
It then wants all adults aged 50 and over to have been offered a coronavirus vaccine by May.
A spokesman for Allied Health South Lincolnshire said: "This week we'll pass 20,000 people vaccinated in South Lincolnshire, and we aren't going to stop until everyone has been looked after."
Springfields Exhibition Centre in Spalding is being used as a vaccination site for patients of the Galletly Practice in Bourne, The Deepings Medical Centre, and GP surgeries in the Spalding area.
Patients registered with the Hereward Practice in Bourne are being invited to attend appointments at St Mary's Medical Centre in Stamford.
