Covid Vaccines are being delivered via Primary Care Networks across the country.
The Hambleton Primary Care Network is receiving 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 1-10
‘In the light of the government announcement about shortening the time between first and second doses of the Covid-19 vaccination for those aged 50 and over and others in cohorts 1 – 9 of the JCVI priority list, we are awaiting information on vaccine supply in order to plan clinics. Please don’t contact your GP – they will be in touch with your new appointment date and time if this is needed.. Second doses are effective when administered anytime between 3 and 12 weeks after the first so don’t worry if your second dose appointment is scheduled beyond 8 weeks. This will not affect the protection provided by your vaccination’
We are aware patients may receive a national letter offering the option to book a Covid vaccination at a mass vaccination site or pharmacy. If you wish to do this please just follow the instructions in your letter. PLEASE DO NOT RING THE SURGERY TO ENQUIRE ABOUT HAVING IT LOCALLY. The number of phone calls we are receiving about vaccines is making it very difficult for other patients needing healthcare to speak to us.
We are currently inviting all patients for their second Pfizer vaccine OR patients who had their first Astra Zeneca vaccine at anytime in January, February or to the 17th of March. 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.
Thank you for your patience.
