New: COVID-19 Vaccine Status Update #4

Our fourth weekly update has some information about the scheduling of second doses, and a notice for those who attended short notice appointments.

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. 31.5 million first doses have been administered in the UK, with 5.4 million people also receiving their second jab. We are currently contacting people who received their first jab on 20th and 22nd January.

The latest figures can be found on the Government vaccine dashboard.
