Covid-19 Vaccination

We are working in collaboration with The Meads Medical Centre, who have been approved as the distribution centre to deliver the first phase of the covid-19 vaccine to eligible patients.  

We are pleased to say that we have started vaccinating our first cohort of patients, those aged over 80 years old, with approximately 500 having received their 1st dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine in recent weeks.  We will be in touch with the remaining patients in this cohort to be vaccinated once we receive further vaccine.

We would respectfully ask that patients wait to be invited for vaccination and do not contact the surgery.

Please find the priority list as advised by NHS England, as follows:

  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
  2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
  3. all those 75 years of age and over
  4. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  5. all those 65 years of age and over
  6. all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
  7. all those 60 years of age and over
  8. all those 55 years of age and over
  9. all those 50 years of age and over

The Pfizer BioNtech vaccine is not stable enough to be transported to enable vaccination for our nursing home and housebound patients, as soon as receive further guidance on the vaccination programme for these two cohorts of patients we will be in contact.

Information about the current vaccine being used, Pfizer BioNTech, can be found here
