AROUND 120 Covid-19 vaccinations were given and 20 health checks carried out during a session at Keighley Shared Church.

The initiative, yesterday, was led by the Modality Partnership.

It was staged in conjunction with a number of organisations, including the Shared Church, Project 6, the Good Shepherd Centre and the Salvation Army.

The session, part of efforts to target population groups where vaccine take-up is below average, was hailed as a success.

Bill Graham, for Modality, said: “We were very pleased with the turnout.

“The Shared Church was a great venue and we hope to organise further sessions there.

“We targeted some population groups where vaccine take-up is a bit less and with partner community organisations encouraged eligible people to come along.

“We’d like to say a massive thank-you to the Rev Natasha Thomas and everyone at the Shared Church for allowing us to use such an outstanding central location for health care.”
