NHS COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME UPDATE
We know that everyone is eager to find out when they will get their Covid vaccination and that this is an anxious time. The NHS is working very hard to invite people who are eligible to have their vaccination, as quickly as possible, and in Somerset, a third of all adults have already been vaccinated.
NEW – People who are aged over 60 can now book their appointment directly with the national booking service online or by calling 119. You don’t need to wait to be contacted by the surgery.
The groups currently being prioritized for a coronavirus vaccine are:
If you are aged between 65-69 (priority group five), we urge you to use the national booking service to book your appointment as soon as you receive a letter from the NHS – please don’t delay.
If you are aged between 16 and 64 (priority group six), with specific underlying health conditions that increase your risk of serious illness, you will be contacted by the GP primary care network team to invite you to your appointment, as soon as we possibly can.
You can really help to support the local vaccination program and our surgery by:
