BARROW'S MP had his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine - and urged others to do the same.

Simon Fell received the AstraZeneca jab at GSK Sports Club in Ulverston, now being used as mass vaccination centre.

He paid tribute to the staff at the vaccination centre and urged those who invited to have the jab to heed the call.

Mr Fell thanked GSK for giving up the space.

"If you get the call, please do get the jab," he said.
