We have now completed almost all of our patients over 65. We are writing to all of those who we've not be able to get hold of, or not been able to book yet (as they may have been in hospital, or had COVID recently, for example). You are welcome to contact us if you are 65 or over and haven't yet been vaccinated.
Our next cohort is a very large group of over 1200 patients. Cohort 6, which includes patients aged 16 to 64 who have an underlying health condition, are being invited in age order, starting with the oldest. If you're interested, you can find out a bit more about what underlying health conditions qualify for this cohort here.
Again, we are inviting by text message where possible, otherwise we will call you. Please don't call us to check if you're in this group as our phone lines will be overwhelmed. We will keep our Facebook page and our website updated with where we are in the invite process, and let you know if you can call us if you feel you have been missed.
As a surgery we are offering COVID vaccinations as per government guidance and we cannot deviate from this. Each patient had been grouped into a cohort as per this guidance and will be called for the vaccine in due course. Please do not call the surgery about your group or to try to change this. If you need to speak to someone please be polite to our receptionists, they are working with the same information as our clinicians, they will tell you your cohort but will not be able to change this or advise when your vaccine can be booked. If you have an queries about the vaccination please email the surgery at email@example.com.
Please be kind and respectful, we are working our hardest for you at this very difficult time.
Scammers are sending emails that invite users to input their bank details into a website to confirm their COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
The NHS will never ask you to share bank details or pay for a vaccine.

Please remember to stay at home after you have had the COVID vaccination.
You still need to follow the rules, even if you have been vaccinated.
