Vaccinations update from Leyburn Medical Practice

Covid-19 vaccination update

Almost all of our patients in groups 1 to 4 have now received their first vaccination.

We are being asked to focus efforts on inviting group 5 and group 6.

Group 5 (those aged 65-69) will be receiving an invitation from the national booking service to attend a vaccination centre or community pharmacy. For patients in this group it is a personal choice – if you are willing to travel to vaccination centre for both vaccinations you can book appointments otherwise please wait to be contacted by the practice.

Group 6 is a large and complicated group of patients which includes those aged 16 to 64 who have an underlying health condition recorded in their medical records.

These groups are going to be invited in age order, starting with the oldest.

We are inviting by text message where possible, otherwise we will call you. Please don’t call us to check if you’re in these groups as our phone lines will be overwhelmed.

Currently timescales are unclear and depend on when our deliveries come.

For those awaiting confirmation of appointments for their second dose we will provide these as soon as confirmation of deliveries is received.

We will keep Facebook and our website updated with supporting information.
