COVID 19 & FLU UPDATES

Covid Vaccine - By the end of the 23/1/21 we will have had 3 clinics at Waddington in which we will have vaccinated nearly all of our patients aged over 80 and we will have started on our patients aged 77 to 79. We have also managed to vaccinate all our patients who are in Nursing homes in our Practice area. Its is frustrating to the Practice and the Primary Care Network the slow and limited supply of vaccine we are having allocated to us and can only hope this situation will improve. We will be contacting you when another clinic is ready to be setup. At the moment any clinic that is set up will only be for patients who have not received their first dose of the vaccine.

 

If you are a Health or Social Care professional and wish to ensure your record is updated with this, pleaase will you email - ian.green2@nhs.net with details of your profession.

 

Please do not ring the surgery asking for an appointment.

If you cannot get to Waddington due to the fact you are housebound then we will put you on a list to be contacted when we have the vaccine that can be transported to patients homes.
