|Covid-19 : Lichfield Cathedral Turned Into Vaccination Centre by miqos02(m): 1:45pm On Jan 16|
Hundreds of people have queued at Lichfield Cathedral to get their coronavirus vaccination.
The place of worship, in Staffordshire, has been turned into a centre to administer the jabs.
Field hospital style facilities along with waiting areas have been set up inside the cathedral, including along its central aisle.
The Dean of Lichfield said people working there had been "buzzing" to help.
The queue of mostly over-80s snaked through the cathedral and its grounds as they waited to get their vaccination on Friday.
Although places of worship have been allowed to stay open during the latest lockdown, the cathedral has chosen to close, holding services online.
The dean said he offered use of the cathedral to the Lichfield Primary Care Network after news of Covid vaccines emerged.

The Very Rev Adrian Dorber told the Press Association setting it up had only taken a couple of days.
"We've got some really well-drilled volunteers and a really capable staff, who have just kind of gone into 'battle action' and done it," he said.
