Coronavirus Vaccine- Update

The practice has been asked by NHS England to work with other local practices to offer the covid-19 vaccine which we have agreed to do. We have been told this will be from the 1st December all being well but this may change. Given that the plan is to vaccinate as much of the population as possible we have been told to do this in stages, prioritising those most vulnerable first. Depending upon your age and/or health conditions you could be invited anytime over the next few months. Be assured we will contact you as soon as it becomes available to you to arrange your appointment.

 

We have been told there are two possible vaccines but we haven’t had confirmation of which one we will receive so at this point cannot provide further detail.

 

Please note you will need two appointments either 21 or 28 days apart depending upon the vaccine we receive but we will help you book these when we contact you; you must have both for it to take effect. If you haven’t had flu you should have this as soon as possible as there must be at least 7 days in between flu vaccine and your first covid. National guidance is encouraging everyone who is eligible to have flu as the increased risk of the severity of covid should you also get flu are significant. Appointments are available now for flu.

 

This is a huge undertaking for ourselves and our partner practices so we ask or your patience and help in timely bookings and letting us know of any changes in these bookings as soon as possible. By working together we can make this happen as quickly as possible.
