An Update on Covid-19 Vaccination

Posted: 12 March 2021 · Practice news

We have completed Covid-19 vaccinations for the cohort groups 1-5. The response from these groups have been tremendously positive and we would like to thank patients and staff for their support and words of kindness and encouragement in making it such a success.

We are now working our way through patients aged 18-64 years with at risk conditions (cohort 6), and we will be contacting you soon to book you in for your vaccination. This is a large group of patients and we are working as quickly as we can to contact as many patients as possible with the supply of vaccine that we have.

Supplies and deliveries of the vaccine have been a little intermittent but are now improving and, as soon as we accept a delivery of vaccine, clinics will be planned and appointments made available within the following 2-3 days.

We will be making a proportion of appointments for this cohort available to book online. Please register if you have not yet signed up to use the online appointment booking system. This may mean you can avoid queuing on the telephone if you have to return a missed call from us to book your appointment.

Do we have up-to-date contact details?

It's important that we have your up-to-date contact details, especially now we are contacting large numbers of patients to invite them for their Covid-19 vaccination. If you would like to update your details or give us your email address, please complete our update to details online form.
