New Information: COVID-19 Vaccine Status Update #2

Here’s our second weekly update on Covid-19 vaccinations, and actions for all priority groups.

Please remember, our Reception team does not have additional information or access to lists for first or second jabs. We are asking patients to refer to these updates for information, leaving the phone lines open for patients who need to speak to us.

The city-wide vaccination programme is making good progress. Everyone will be contacted when it is their turn to get vaccinated.

Status by Group:

For any group where there is a change or update, it will be marked with an asterisk and highlighted in bold. Our first update can be found here.
