A fifth mass vaccination centre has opened its doors in the North East with the capacity to see up to 1,000 people a day.
Darlington's Arena, or Mowden Park stadium as its also known, is the second vaccination centre in the town.
Dr Stewart Findlay who is the director for the Covid Vaccination Programme for the North East and North Cumbria said: "We're planing to do 500 to 600 vaccines a day and will continue to recruit staff so we have the ability to go up to 1,000 maybe 2,000 a day as the programme continues.
"We are expecting the vaccine supply to increase."
Across the North East and Cumbria more than 900,000 people have now been given their first Covid vaccine.
Pennny Spring, Darlington's director of public heath said: "This is going to enable us to vaccinate so many more people so quickly."
