Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic News - Updated 19th January 2021
We are delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of six Primary Care Networks in Dorset who are ready and able to participate in Wave One of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
This is an exciting time for staff and our community. We look forward to seeing you for your vaccination and anticipate a healthy and happy 2021!
We are currently vaccinating patients aged 75 years and over. We are currently in the process of contacting patients by phone or text in this age group but if you haven't been contacted yet please call the Practice on 01297 443399
Following the latest NHS England directive to increase the time between the 2 doses of Covid vaccine, we wanted to let those patients who are booked for their second dose of Covid Vaccine on Wednesday 20th January know that we are in the process of cancelling these appointments and you will be contacted to book your second dose within 12 weeks. You do not need to contact the Practice at this time as you will be contacted over the next few days. We are awaiting further guidance on the next stage of the vaccine programme, and the availability of the AstraZeneca vaccine. So we will be reviewing how we progress with the next lot of vaccinations on Monday. We will keep you informed.
If you are a patient at the Practice and over 75 years old or know of anyone who has not been contacted in this patient group please advise them to call the Practice to book their vaccination now. We are awaiting guidance regarding vaccinating housebound patients and hope to have some information within the next few days.
