We are delighted to have started our COVID19 Vaccination Clinics.
GPs have been asked to provide vaccines for those aged 80 and over, moving on to those aged 75 – 79 and then those who are shielding.
You can find out more about the priority groups by clicking here.
All other groups will be offered appointments via Health Board run services by letter.
The delivery of the vaccine is in small batches and we are not certain when these will arrive. As soon as we have supplies of vaccine our team will contact you to arrange an appointment.
There is no need for you to contact the practice as we will be in touch with those eligible. If you have any questions about the COVID Vaccine, please visit NHS Inform by clicking here, or call the national helpline 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
If you feel you have been missed for the vaccine please visit
