Anyone aged over 18 who is yet to have their first dose of vaccine will be able to attend a walk-in clinic in the district this weekend.

The clinic will be held at Tennants in Leyburn from 4pm to 7pm on Saturday, June 26.

This walk-in session is for a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine  for anyone over who has not yet had a first dose, and doesn’t have an appointment booked for one.

NHS officials say it will be first come, first served basis.

A spokesperson added: “The staff will do their best to get everyone through swiftly and efficiently but please be patient if there is a little wait on arrival.”
