COVID-19 Vaccine


Following yesterday’s information regarding the authorisation of the Oxford Vaccine & The Statement from the UK Chief Medical Officers on the prioritisation of first doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
We are receiving a very high number of calls from patients to obtain further information. At this stage we can not provide any further information, however we are expected to be updated by NHS England later this morning.
We will keep you all updated on relevant COVID-19 vaccination updated via:

 

The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. When it is the right time people will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a letter, either from their GP or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.

Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this letter. Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.


We successfully administered 975 vaccines to the first of our patients last week. We are operating our vaccine clinics as a network of 6 practices within our geographical area. Due to this there are a limited number of appointments that can be offered per practice for any given clinic. This will mean that you may not be invited to attend straight away. We are following the public health guidelines for the order in which we vaccinate our patient population starting with phase one priority groups. These include those aged 80 or over, residents in care homes and health & social care staff. If you are in one of these first phase priority groups and didn’t receive an invitation to book an appointment this time round please rest assured you will receive an invite soon. Invites are based on vaccine availability and delivery slots. Please do not contact the practice to book a vaccine appointment unless you have been invited to either by text message or letter. We will not proceed with moving onto other priority groups until all patients within the current group have either received their vaccination or declined at which time we will communicate when the next priority group will be invited to book their vaccine appointment. Thank you for your patience whilst we commence with the covid-19 vaccination programme.
