A message to our patients regarding the Covid-19 Vaccination
We have recently been contacting patients who are aged 80 and over to book an appointment to have their Covid-19 vaccination. At the moment these are taking place at a central hub, and not at the surgery. The programme is currently being managed externally but we are responsible for booking our patients into the available appointment slots.
We have been made aware this afternoon that, due to a problem with the supply chain, the vaccine has not been delivered for the patients who have been booked into clinics this week. Patients who already have an appointment will be contacted by the managing organisation to let them know their appointment will need to be rescheduled. We are assured that all those affected will be contacted when further appointment slots are available and will be treated as a priority as soon as the vaccine becomes available.
We would like to offer our heartfelt apologies to those of you who are affected by this. We have been working hard to start the vaccination process for our patients are we are frustrated and disappointed; we will of course continue to keep you updated regarding this situation and would like to thank you for your patience.
