MORE than 100,000 Covid-19 vaccines have been administered at the Steam Museum. 

The Swindon railway museum opened as a vaccination site on December 16, with 1,000 people given their first dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine over the first two days. 

Vaccinators hit the 70,000 jabs milestone in early April. 

Announcing this weekend that more than 100,000 Covid-19 vaccinations had been administered, the Steam Museum wrote on Twitter: "Congratulations to the medical and support staff, volunteers and partner organisations on reaching this incredible milestone!"

The museum was turned into a massive vaccine centre last year through efforts led by the Wyvern Health Partnership and Brunel Health Group.

In April, strategy and operations manager for Brunel Health Centre Richard Rees told the Adver how it was when the centre first opened.

“Everything was brand new and all kept changing. We were waiting for things like protocols and government guidelines and as they were changing, we moved things all around and went through,” he said.

“It was constantly evolving, It still is. All we can do is adapt."
