COVID VACCINATION

Posted on January 6th, 2021

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY – WE WILL CONTACT YOU

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY – WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO ARRANGE YOUR APPOINTMENTS

The 6 GP practices in Ellesmere Port are working together and combining resource’s to deliver the COVID vaccine from one site for further information please visit the One Ellesmere Port website

We are pleased to announce that the COVID Vaccination Programme is now underway!

One Ellesmere Port have began to deliver the COVID-19 Vaccine to patients in care homes and the Vaccine site opens on Friday 15th January 2021 to patients over 80 years old.

This is an appointment only service please do not turn up as you will not receive your vaccination until invited.

We understand that everyone is extremely anxious to receive inoculation against the COVID-19 virus, especially as we are now in our third National Lockdown.

We politely ask that you refrain from contacting the surgery either by telephone, e-consult or by visiting the surgery to ask when or if you can book an appointment to receive the vaccination, even if you have received a letter from NHS England.

The decisions as to eligibility, priority and when patients will be offered the vaccination is provided by NHS England & the Government Vaccination Programme, NOT by your GP Practice.

Your GP is not able to  prioritise patients as The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), an independent expert group, has recommended that the NHS offers these vaccines first to those at highest risk of catching the infection and of suffering serious complications if they catch the infection.

This includes older adults, frontline health and social care workers, care home residents and staff, and those with certain clinical conditions. When more vaccine becomes available, the vaccines will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible.

When the time is right for you to be invited we will contact you directly , it is therefore important that you ensure that your contact details are up to date
