COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Posted on December 29th, 2020

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Vaccinations are now being delivered according to priority groups announced by the UK government as identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).  Details and links are below.

As the scope of the vaccination programme is so vast, the vaccinations will not take place at your GP practice.  You may be invited to a local vaccination service or to a local Mass Vaccination Hub.  These services are led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists, and are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in our community.  Where you receive a call, please use that opportunity to get your vaccination if possible – the sooner our community is vaccinated, the safer our residents will be.

When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward including the details of where and when. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system. We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.  If there is an opportunity to contact the surgery we will let you know on the first page of the website.  This information will be reviewed and updated where necessary daily.

The covid-19 vaccinations priority information can be found on the following site but a summary of the priority groups is also listed below:

Covid-19 Vaccination Priority Groups

JCVI advises that the first priorities for the COVID-19 vaccination programme should be the prevention of mortality and the maintenance of the health and social care systems. As the risk of mortality from COVID-19 increases with age, prioritisation is primarily based on age. The order of priority for each group in the population corresponds with data on the number of individuals who would need to be vaccinated to prevent one death, estimated from UK data obtained from March to June 2020:

 residents in a care home for older adults and their carers

all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers

all those 75 years of age and over

all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals

all those 65 years of age and over

all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality

all those 60 years of age and over

all those 55 years of age and over

all those 50 years of age and over

As with all Government advice and circumstances around Covid-19 this is an ever-changing picture and the above may be subject to change.
