Following on from the announcement from the country’s Department of Health and Social Care this morning that the COVID-19 vaccine will be available in the UK from next week we wanted to update our patients on our current position.
At present, we do not have any delivery dates set and eligibility for the vaccine will be based on a patient’s individual risk. Therefore, care homes and patient’s over 80 years old will be the first group’s eligible for this vaccine. We will begin to put our preparations into action in order to provide care and support to all those eligible.
Please do not contact us at this time to book an appointment for this vaccine. Our process for getting these booked in will work similar to that of how we arranged our flu clinics and so we will be contacting all eligible patients as and when the vaccine becomes available.
