Covid 19 Vaccination Programme.
Our first Covid 19 Astra Zeneca vaccines are being administered to patients beginning on 13th
Our current allocation of vaccines allows for 50% of our over 80 yr olds to be vaccinated.
We will contact patients to arrange vaccination appointments as soon as possible after we are allocated further supplies.
The initial roll out is going to be slow and frustrating for us all, but hopefully supply chains will improve rapidly so that we can deliver the vaccine programme quickly.
At present the Department of Health is not allowing vaccination in patients’ homes and there has been no information as yet on how housebound patients will receive their vaccines.
Because of the anticipated delay in delivery of vaccines in a domiciliary setting we would strongly encourage anyone who can make it to the surgery to do their best to attend when offered an appointment .
