You may have seen or heard the latest news regarding the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, particularly for those aged under 30.
Please follow this link for more information:
and the following link to a presentation indicating the risks versus the benefits of the Oxford /AstraZeneca vaccines:
Covid Vaccines are being delivered to Primary Care Networks across the country.
The Hambleton Primary Care Network is recieving deliveries of the vaccine which is to be shared out amongst its 8 practices.
The vaccination programme is being delivered from the Forum in Northallerton, NOT from the surgeries.
We can confirm that people are being invited in strict accordance with the JCVI guidance, cohorts 1-8. This includes anyone aged 16 – 64 with an underlying health condition, carers and health and social care staff and patients newly added to the shielding list in accordance with the updated national guidance.
All local surgeries are using national searches to identify these people. Please be mindful that it may not be obvious as to why some people have been invited; Patients are entitled to privacy regarding their medical conditions. We will be contacting patients as and when we are able to, depending when deliveries of the vaccine arrive.
We are currently inviting patients for their second vaccine if they had their first Pfizer on in December or January 9th/10th/12th/13th/15th or 16th OR had their first Astra Zeneca vaccine at anytime in January. If you have not received an invite and you fall into one of these groups please call the surgery.
If you think we may not have your mobile number, please let the surgery know.
If you have a forthcoming appointment at a mass vaccination site and therefore do not need your allocated vaccine from the Forum, it would be helpful if you could let us know.
Thank you for your patience.
