COVID-19 Vaccine Update (3)

Posted by: Flora - Posted on:

Patients over 80 will be invited shortly if they have not been invited already. There are 2 ways that patients in this group may attend for their vaccine:

  • You may receive a letter from the NHS inviting you to attend a national vaccination centre. Currently the closest of these at the moment is in Manchester, information on how to attend will be in your letter.
  • If you cannot travel to a national vaccination centre location offered in this letter you do not need to do anything and should wait to be contacted again. Patients are also being invited to attend a smaller vaccination site in Huddersfield, and patients will continue to be contacted as more appointments become available. 
  • Housebound patients will be contacted by the practice as soon as supplies of the AstraZeneca (Oxford) vaccine become available.

Please note we do not have specific dates as guidance is frequently being updated by NHS England. This page will be updated when we have further information. Once again, we kindly ask patients NOT to contact the surgery regarding the Covid vaccination. Doing so may prevent people that need medical help from getting through to us.
