New: COVID-19 Vaccine Status Update #3

Our third weekly vaccine update shows no real difference from update #2. The status for each propriety groups remains unchanged.

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.

Everyone will be contacted when it is their turn to get vaccinated. So far more than 30 million people have been vaccinated in the UK. The plan is to offer a first dose to everyone in the top 9 priority groups – around 32 million people – by 15th April.
