Vaccination update from Leyburn Medical Centre

While Richmondshire, in terms of the case rate per 100K, continues to have the highest rate in North Yorkshire, in national terms this rate is still low.

Last week vaccination clinics were held on Mon, Tues and Sat (the AstraZeneca vaccine) and more are planned for this week as supplies are now improving.

Currently, the practice is inviting the 75–79-year-old cohort for vaccination. Invitations are currently being made by phone call (patients are asked to be alert for fake invitations sent through the post – any invitations coming from the practice where phone calls have not made contact will be on the practice’s headed notepaper) and patients attending for vaccination are given their next appointment on leaving.
