After 265 days, the vaccination clinic at the South Lake Leisure Centre has closed for the final time.

The vaccination centre first opened in early December 2020, not long after the Leisure Centre had opened.

Initially care home residents and staff, health and social care staff and those working in high- risk settings were first to get the jab.

More recently the vaccine has been rolled out to those aged over 16.

The Southern Trust, who has operated the clinic, praised their staff while marking the closure.

"Our amazing and dedicated colleagues have worked so hard for the last nine months and will continue to do so in the days ahead across pop up vaccine clinics (53 clinics so far….and counting)," they said.

"Thank you to ABC Council and to everyone for your support. We really do have the best #NHSHeroes

"Keep an eye on our social media channels over the next few days for more information on where you can continue to get your first or second dose vaccine."
