Coronavirus Vaccination (updated 12.01.2021)
Thank you for the interest you have shown in receiving the COVID Vaccination. DHG are delivering this vaccine with the support of The Orchard Medical Centre, Three Shires Medical Centre and Green Valley Health who are part of our Primary Care Network, as well as community volunteers and the services of the Council.
As of the week commencing the 21st December 2020 we began the first phase of the COVID-19 vaccination programme. As advised by NHS England we have started vaccinating the over 80's, Care Home Residents and Health Care Workers. To date we have been successful in administering approximately 3000 vaccinations and will continue to do so, as efficiently and safely as we can as more vaccinations are allocated to us.
As it currently stands, and in line with Government guidance, the second vaccination will now not be administered until approximately 11-12 weeks after the first vaccine. We will contact you once these second vaccinations become available to us. Please avoid contacting the surgery by phone for vaccine related queries so that those who are medically unwell can access our clinicians.
Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm when you will receive your invitation however, please be assured every patient will be contacted as per NHSE guidance.
Thank you for your continued patience.
