COVID 19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME UPDATE 26 FEBRUARY 2021

We have now moved to vaccinating patients in priority group 6.  Priority group 6 is large and covers a wide age range, and many health conditions. We are contacting patients in Group 6 over the next few weeks in order of those at most risk of a more severe outcome from contracting Covid. If you believe you are in Cohort 6, please do not contact the practice – we will contact you. Our Patient Co-Ordinators will not be able to book you and we need to keep our lines free for patients calling with non-covid related reasons. We appreciate that it can be confusing for patients to know if they belong to one group or another. At this stage we are following a series of nationally defined criteria and that allows us to contact the people we want to come forward for vaccination. We are working tirelessly to vaccinate our patients as quickly as possible using every potential slot and every dose of vaccine as soon as we receive it.  An increase in supply is expected from 1 March 2021 across the UK and we expect to be able to increase our number of clinics then. Please be patient and kind to our staff; we will be in touch when it is your turn.
