Ensuring That Everyone Is Vaccinated – Who Is Eligible And How You Will Be Contacted

From Monday 1st March everyone aged 60 to 63 who hasn’t yet had their first coronavirus vaccine dose will get their invite this week.

If you are in this age group, you will receive a letter inviting you to make an appointment at a vaccination centre or community pharmacy-led site through the national booking services.

Our practice is contacting people in the groups below to be vaccinated at our local GP-led clinic:

  • people at clinical risk, including those identified by the Government’s clinical risk assessment tool.
  • Read more about how the tool works <www.digital.nhs.uk/coronavirus/risk-assessment/clinical-tool/information-for-patients> and why you might have been called.
  • adult carers
  • people with a severe or profound learning disability
  • Anyone over 60, the clinically extremely vulnerable (including people who have been shielding), frontline health and social care workers can contact the NHS to book their vaccination through the national booking service  www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 free of charge between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
