Covid-19 Vaccination Programme

The roll-out of a Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine across local communities by groups of GP practices starts in December 2020.

This expands the local roll-out beyond the hospital hubs which started vaccinating on December 8th.

Please help us to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme safely and effectively by following this simple guidance:

1. We will contact you when is the right time for you to come forward. Please do not contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.

2. When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you attend appointments when you arrange them.

3. Please continue to wear a face covering and follow social distancing and hand hygiene guidance as, until a vaccine has been fully rolled out, this is the most effective way to reduce transmission of the virus and help save lives.

Flu Vaccinations for 50-64 year olds

Please note, if you are in the 50-64-year old age group you will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine. No appointments will be offered for this age group until then.

This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination, for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Thank you
