COVID-19 Information Update March 2021

COVID - 19 Vaccinations in your area

How will I know when I will be able to get vaccinated?

The NHS will contact you when you are eligible to be vaccinated and inform you of the location and date. You will also see messages in your local community. You will be able to book an appointment, either using an online or telephone booking system so that you can choose the right time and location to attend.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY ABOUT THE COVID-Vaccination ; we will contact you in due course.

Many patients have now received their first vaccines from us and are waiting for their second vaccine. Please be assured that you will be contacted by us for this to be done within the recommended 12 week window.

Thank you for your patience.

What are the priority groups?

1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers - have received first dose

2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers - have received first dose

3. all those 75 years of age and over - have received first dose

4. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (excluding pregnant women and those under 16) - have received first dose

5. all those 65 years of age and over - we will shortly be contacting those who have not yet received their vaccination or their invitation via the national booking system

6. all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality (this is the group we are currently working on)

7. all those 60 years of age and over - these patients can use the National Booking System: Booking

8. all those 55 years of age and over - anyone 56 or over can use the National Booking System : Booking

    (those between 55 and 56 will need to just wait that little bit longer)
