Tomorrow we’ll complete our first 1200 doses of Covid-19 vaccination, working as part of our Primary Care Network with Hampton Medical Centre and Broad Lane Surgery. Enormous thanks are due to both of them, to all our volunteers, and to the Greenwood Centre, but particularly to Broad Lane who have been leading this work.
All of our over-80s and care home residents should now have been offered the vaccination. If you are in one of these groups and haven’t, please let us know.
We have now begun to invite the next priority groups in line with the JCVI guidance, using a system called AccuBook which enables you to book directly in for a vaccination. You can read about:
We are proceeding on the basis that vaccine will be delivered to our site when we’ve been told it will – there have been logistical problems with this nationally, and these are likely to worsen with the decision to add in pharmacy sites, so please bear with us if we do have to cancel clinics at short notice.
We do not control what vaccine is delivered, and given the uncertainty over future supply our advice is to come in for whichever one is available at the earliest opportunity. Please don’t wait for the AstraZeneca or Pfizer over the other – we need to get this done as quickly as possible.
Finally, we know how anxious many of you are to be vaccinated, and we’re grateful to you for bearing with us as we get this done. We expect to deliver about 2,500 doses next week, and are aiming to be able to do up to 1200 a day if vaccine supply allows, so rest assured we’ll get to you as soon as national guidance allows.
