The Government has opened 33 new mass vaccination centres on Monday in the race to get Brits jabbed as quickly as possibly. The new centres mean there is a network of 50 vaccination hubs across the country, delivering thousands of jabs a day. One of the chosen sites is the Black Country Living Museum, made famous as the set for hit TV drama Peaky Blinders.

Other locations opening up to vaccines include a racecourse, a showground, a football stadium and a former Ikea store.

The new centres will be focusing on offering vaccines to health and social workers on Monday, before opening their doors to other priority groups on Tuesday.
