Covid-19 Vaccination - why do I have to wait?

Please do not contact the practice to ask about COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible.

We have been asked by NHS England and NHS Improvement to start delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme in December. This will be done by working together with other local GP practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, priority groups have been agreed, so the vaccine can be delivered to people who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about where to go and when.  

Please don’t contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then

Flu is a highly infectious illness that spreads rapidly through the coughs and sneezes of people who are carrying the virus. Flu symptoms can hit quite suddenly and severely. They usually include fever, chills, headaches and aching muscles.

The flu vaccine may only protect you for a year because the viruses that cause flu are always changing.

We are following government advice that all patients who are 50+ will be able to receive the vaccine this year.

GPS Healthcare are awaiting more guidance for this service and estimate the vaccines will be available sometime in November, all being well. We understand this is an uncertain time but we assure you we will be fulfilling this service as outlined by the government in due course when we have received all the relevant information to do so.
