The first two of the three allocated Saturdays have been completed, with around 700 people vaccinated on each day.
A spokesperson for the Rotary said: “It’s been a great way for our Rotary Club to support the local community and Berry Lane Surgery.
“A number of people have also asked if we get paid for our time. As a local Rotary Club and registered charity all the members in our club are volunteers and provide their time and equipment for free at all events.”

The next drive-through fly vaccination will take place on Saturday 31 October. People wanting a vaccination will need an appointment from the surgery.
