Wonderful news that the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine has been approved.
We await communications from the government and NHS England on the plans for delivering this vaccine. General practice has been very vocal in our desire to support this programme as we are experts at delivering vaccinations – we do it all the time!
Please refrain from contacting us about the vaccine – like with the Pfizer vaccine there will be eligibility criteria that we have to follow in order to vaccinate the most vulnerable first. When patients become eligible they will be contacted – either by the NHS centrally or us directly – to arrange their vaccination appointment.
Our phone lines are currently very busy with the usual queries so we need to keep them free to allow us to continue to support our patients.
As more information is released on the vaccination programme, and the role Berinsfield Health Centre will play in it, we will communicate this to patients via this page, our website and in some cases via text. If we don’t have a valid mobile number for you but you would like to receive any updates, please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
