COVID-19 VACCINE- LATEST INFORMATION
Where can I get a vaccine?
Vaccines will be offered from a number of different locations to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. These locations are still being decided and we will share these details with patients as soon as we know.
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. Currently, it advises that it should then be offered to people with high or medium risk clinical conditions and those aged between 50 and 80. 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.
We will be told by NHS England when our deliveries of vaccines are coming but until they contact us we do not know when this will be.
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.
