Covid-19 vaccination programme status
Updated: April 15, 2021
This week we have passed our landmark to offer vaccinations to everyone in priority groups 1-9, and are now inviting patients between 45 and 50 years.
We continue to adjust our processes to accommodate the recent advice about use of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine in patients under 30. For more information on this visit the Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunisations here. In the meantime, please note the recommendation that if you have already had a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine you should have your second dose as planned.
With respect of the new priority group of adults living with adults who are immunosuppressed, follow this link for more information. We have also added a new FAQ on this (see FAQ 14).
We continue to hold a vaccine for everyone over 50, at-risk and carers (Groups 1-9) as priority even as we move on to people under 50. So, if you are one of these please contact us now and we will be thrilled to give you your jab. If you are hesitant or have a question, phone the surgery and book a consultation with a doctor or nurse. We will help you with honest and accurate advice.
For everyone else between 18 and 45 please remember: we will contact you when it is your turn. It really helps us if you do not contact us to ask about your vaccination. Visit this page once a week or so – we update any new information here as we get it. If you have a question that cannot be answered from the information on this page, please use the ‘Contact us’ link on this website to ask us, instead of phoning us. We will aim to respond as soon as possible and within a week at the latest.
See the table below and our FAQs for more detail and information about the current status of our vaccination programme.
