New Today: COVID-19 Vaccine Status Update #1

A lot of patients are calling to ask about when they’re able to get their first or second doses of the covid-19 vaccine.

From today onwards, we’ll post an update to our website every Monday, with the availability for each group, and actions you can take. Please refer to these updates rather than calling the practice, please.

We understand everyone is eager to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Please bear with us. We are making good progress through the priority groups and you will not be missed.

Our Reception team does not have additional information or access to lists for first or second jabs. The number of calls they are receiving is making it harder for other patients to get through.
