COVID-19 VACCINE- LATEST INFORMATION
Where can I get a vaccine?
There is a central vaccination centre for all patients registered with a GP in the Calderdale Lower Valley Primary Care Network (PCN) -Church Lane Surgery, Rydings Hall Surgery, Rastrick Health Centre, Northolme Practice and Longroyde Surgery. The centre is at:
Northowram Surgery, Northowram Green, Northowram, Halifax HX3 7JE.
This is strictly by appointment only and you will be invited to attend when it is your turn.
The vaccination centre is staffed by GP's, Nurses and clerical staff from all the surgeries listed above.
Who will get a vaccine?
The vaccine will be offered to those most at risk from COVID19 first, starting with people living in care homes and those over 80 years old. This is based on the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations which is available here. This will be done in a phased approach and full details of when and where will be shared as soon as we have availability. We will contact you as soon as we have the vaccine available to arrange an appointment.
Deliveries of the vaccine to our vaccination centre are coming regularly, and we will contact all eligible patients as soon as we can.
Please DO NOT contact the surgery to ask when it will be your turn as we can't tell you and you may block the phone lines for patients who need medical attention. Thank you.
