We are currently delivering the 2nd doses of the covid vaccinations. Following the recent change of guidance by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to reduce the time period between the first and second doses for patients over 50 or in clinical at risk groups, we will be bringing forward the clinic dates for the remaining 2nd doses. We shall be in contact with patients to invite them in for their 2nd vaccination as soon as possible, please bear with us and we kindly ask that you do not phone the surgery to ask when you are going to be invited. We are working to arrange these clinics at short notice following the change in guidance.
If you are over 50years of age or in a clinical at risk group and are still waiting to have your first vaccine then please call 119 to book into a mass vaccination site. If you are under 50 and not had a first vaccination then you will be contacted by the National Booking Service in line with the age group invitations.
We are contacting patients mainly via a text or phone call so please ensure we have your up to date contact details.
