Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccinations may not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community
You will be contacted directly when it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination. 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 their GP directly as you will not be able to get an appointment until you are contacted.
Staff have been working tirelessly to ensure the necessary measures are in place for those most at risk to get their vaccine first. We ask for your patience and understanding at this time, we are doing everything we can to stick to our timelines however we may need to cancel or amend appointments depending on delivery of the vaccine.
Please be assured that no one will be left behind, this is the start of the vaccination programme and there will be enough for everyone.
