We are getting a lot of enquiries regarding the covid vaccine, please do not telephone the surgery regarding the vaccine as this disrupts the flow of urgent telephone calls.

Information to patients regarding Covid vaccine:

  • Who will get the Covid vaccine first?

The exact order in which a Covid vaccine will be distributed is yet to be confirmed, and will depend on which vaccines will be available, subject to them passing regulatory checks. However, interim guidance published by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation says that care home residents and staff will be the first priority, followed by the over 80s and health and social care workers. The vaccine will then be made available to people in 5-year age bands, from the over 75s to over 50s, with the oldest as the highest priority.
