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 or text, either from their GP or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments.
Please do not contact the NHS to get an appointment until you get this invitation.
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:
- We will contact you if you are eligible for a vaccine when we know what date the vaccine is available for you
- It is essential, if you are given a vaccine, that you return for the second part of the vaccination on the date that you are advised to
- Please do not telephone us to ask when or if you are going to get a Covid Vaccine, we will contact you individually if and when you are invited to have one and will keep this website updated with as much information as we can
- We have many patients to vaccinate so we ask for your patience as we work through this vaccination programme which will last the majority of 2021.
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.
Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.
