COVID 19 VACCINE

COVID-19 Vaccine: The NHS will get in touch when it’s your turn to be vaccinated – please do not contact the Surgery before then

 The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun. However, initially the vaccination will be prioritised for those aged 80 and over, care home workers and residents, and frontline health and care staff. These vaccinations will be delivered through a limited number of Hospital and GP Hubs. See this leaflet explaining who was chosen for the first group and why.

 If you are in a priority group, when it is the right time, you will receive an invitation to come forward for your vaccination.  For most people this will be a letter, (some might receive a text from their GP practice), the practice or the national NHS.  This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number. 

 This is going to be a long-term programme and it will likely take until at least Spring before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.

 Please help us and do not contact the practice or other NHS services to get an appointment for a COVID vaccination until you get this letter.   Please also continue to follow the national guidance to control the virus and save lives. 

 Information on the vaccine is available on www.selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/
