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 1-6. 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.
People who fall into Cohort 5 (aged 65-69) should have received letters inviting them to a mass vaccination site.
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.
