We are delighted to be involved in the rollout of the
COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
This Programme is being strictly overseen by the Health Board who authorise us to administer in accordance with their timescale. We appreciate your patience in this regard as we seek to be as responsive as possible to this rapidly evolving situation. Please be assured that we will invite you for vaccination as soon as we are permitted to do so and have confirmation of vaccine supply.
The vaccination GPs are offering is the Astra Zeneca (Oxford) vaccine and is given as a 2 dose schedule with an approximate 12 week interval between doses.
The Trust Vaccination teams administer the Pfizer vaccine (which is stored at -70 degrees), and have been delivering this to Care Home residents, Health and Social Care Staff, patients aged 60-69 years old and Carers.
Please read the published leaflet entitled 'Covid-19 Vaccination, A Guide for Adults'
Public Health Agency have also published FAQs regarding vaccination.
We are running our COVID vaccination clinics in Knock Presbyterian Church (except for our smaller clinic on 11th March 2021 which will be held in Cherryvalley Group Practice) We wish to extend our sincere thanks to Knock for their willingness to assist us. Their large hall and carpark have enabled us to ensure adequate social distancing, and maximise our ability to deliver to more patients at each clinic.
We continue to appreciate your patience as we undertake this significant work in addition to delivering ongoing medical care to our Practice population.
