COVID-19 Update

Posted by: rachelhillam - Posted on:

We are currently offering vaccinations to those at greatest risk of Covid-19 first (care home residents and workers, frontline health and social care staff and people aged 80 and over), in line with the recommendations from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations & Immunisations (JCVI)


As we are focusing on vaccinating people as quickly as possible, we’re not yet able to confirm where patients are on the list, or when they’re likely to be contacted. When it’s your turn, you will be invited to make an appointment.

Please do not be worried if you or a family member is over 80 but hasn’t heard anything so far. You might know others over 80 who have been invited for their vaccination already, but that does not mean that you or your relative are a lower priority. This is only the start of the vaccination programme and it will take some time to work through everyone.
