Patients will receive an invitation to come forward. For most people this will be a text, call or a letter from their GP or a letter from the NHS.
Whichever way you are contacted, you will receive details of how to book your Covid vaccination appointment.
Please do not contact us or the NHS to get an appointment until you get this invitation.
If you have had an invitation letter from the NHS but would prefer to have your vaccination at the Fordingbridge Hospital site, you may find that you are waiting longer than other patients and we encourage you to take up the offer of an appointment at a larger vaccination site.
We are all excited to hear that there is real progress on a Covid vaccine and that this should improve the quality of life for all of us.
We know that you, like us, are struggling with the confines imposed upon us all due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Everyone is trying to make the best of the situation and, as a Practice, we are committed to caring for you in the best possible way whilst keeping both you and our team safe.
To keep you as informed as possible, we will update these messages frequently as we become aware of more information from NHS England:Meanwhile, we all need to keep to the advice of hand-washing, face masks and social distancing but we all look forward to the time when we will return to life as normal.
Thank you for your patience.
