As well as the new vaccination centres, some local GPs are also continuing to work together to provide vaccination services across the district and are busy contacting patients to offer them appointments.
Dr Jason Broch, a GP in Leeds and Chair of NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccinations and the new services give people additional options to choose from.
“All our centres are continuing to offer appointments and have availability so if you are eligible, please don’t delay and book your appointment now. It’s easy to do and will help to protect both you and your loved ones.”
