COVID VACCINATION INFORMATION:
GPs in the South Hardwick PCN area are working hard to finalise the location for the initial vaccination hub in the area. This has been the subject of very stringent rules and regulations and you can be assured that the NHS is working around the clock in the South Hardwick area to finalise the details. We are very confident that the first vaccination hub will be available in the South Hardwick area in early January, using the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine.
This vaccine’s storage requirements have severely limited the locations from which the vaccines can be stored and given. We do anticipate the approval of the Astra Zeneca/Oxford vaccine shortly and this will enable us to plan for many more vaccination centres, because this vaccine is easier to transport and store. Patients aged 80 or over, care home staff and healthcare staff are the first priority groups for vaccinations, and these will be broadened once more vaccine becomes available.
Patients will be contacted when their vaccine is available and we are asking everyone to avoid contacting their surgery in the meantime. It is possible that South Hardwick residents are hearing of neighbours receiving the vaccination, but this will only be because they are registered with a GP practice outside of the South Hardwick area or are a member of NHS or adult care staff.
Everyone has an important part to play and we’re asking people to remember the following:
· please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you;
· when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments;
· and please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
