COVID 19 Vaccination Update
Our first batch of vaccines have arrived!
Around 1000 people are booked into Beighton Health Centre from tomorrow (Saturday) until Monday. The preparations have been a challenge but are all going as planned.
The other exciting news is that we have been offered another 1-2 deliveries, each of 1000 vaccines, for next week (beginning 18/1). We have agreed to deliver these also. We will be contacting as many of our patients aged over 75 in the next few days to offer them the vaccine.
We would ask again that you don’t contact us to check when you will be having it, or to ask questions about the specific vaccines you will be having. We will continue to work through in the priority that we have been given, by calling and texting patients. This is when we’ll be able to answer any questions you may have.
Giving 3000 vaccines in 1 week will be a significant undertaking for our staff. The GP surgery will continue to function but we will have to prioritise patients that can not wait until the following week. We apologise in advance for anyone who experiences disruption as a result.
We hope the experiences of getting the vaccine will be simple and positive for all involved!
