COVID Update – 24 February 2021

Our second clinic this week is well underway at Crosfield Hall – which is starting to feel like a second home for our hard-working vaccinators and volunteers!

In line with national guidance we are currently contacting patients who fall into Group 6. This includes adults aged 16-65 with underlying health conditions that put them more at risk of becoming seriously unwell.

This is a very large group of people (across all 3 practices, there are over 3,000 people in this group) so it will take us a few weeks to be able to contact all of those who are eligible, so we ask for your patience while we contact everyone. Where we have a mobile phone number on your record, we will send you a text invitation to book an appointment, otherwise we will call you on your landline number.

We also have some good news for those that received their first vaccination at Crosfield before Christmas. For those who received their first dose on 22nd or 23rd December, we will be calling you to book your second dose in the w/c 8th March. The clinics will be at Crosfield Hall and we will start calling to book you in this week.

For anyone who has yet to receive their first vaccine but is aged 64+ OR has received a letter classing them as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable OR is an adult in receipt of carers allowance, you can book a vaccine appointment at Oakley Road in Millbrook by calling 119, booking online at www.nhs.uk/book-coronavirus-vaccination or for the next 7 days, you can walk in to the centre at Oakley Road without a pre-booked appointment anytime between 12:30-15:30.
