Covid-19 Vaccination Update 22nd Feb

We have invited all patients in top 5 priority groups for their first covid vaccination. We are working collaboratively with local practices, our federation and clinical commissioning group to get everyone vaccinated. We are now inviting patients in priority group 6 who have conditions that put them at increased risk. We understand you may have individual questions about where you are in that priority. Please understand we do not control the priority groups. We are working hard to move through the priority groups as quickly as possible, and we will contact you when it is your turn to book. We kindly request that you do not contact the surgery for information about this. If you have concerns about your priority group, you should first check carefully with the government guidance. Our reception staff does not have any additional information and are unable to answer queries relating to priority groups. This web page is the most up-to-date source of information about vaccination for our patients and we update it regularly.

Please visit our FAQ to get information on priority groups. IF YOU ARE NOT IN AN ELIGIBLE GROUP PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE PRACTICE TO INQUIRE ABOUT A VACCINATION as staff will have no additional information. We follow the government guidance and will be updating on progress regularly. The government has suggested that all adults will be offered vaccination during 2021. Please wait for the practice to invite you.

Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group

The government have recently sent out letters to a group of people that have underlying health problems which may put them at higher risk of complications of COVID-19. We are due to receive more information from 22nd Feb and will then be able to review the list to check for any inaccuracies. If there has been an error we will contact you. In the meantime you are advised to follow the advice in the letter.

Appointment for second vaccination

We will invite all patients who had their first vaccine at Allum Hall. We will be following the priority criteria as we did for the first vaccine. Patients who had their first dose at mass vaccination sites or elsewhere need to contact them for their second dose.
