The COVID vaccination programme here and across North Yorkshire continues to progress at pace and we’re delighted to say that all of our patients in the first four priority groups, as determined by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), have been offered a vaccine.
Thank you for your continued patience.
We are now turning our attention to patients in the next two priority groups – all those aged 65 and over, and all individuals aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality, together with carers and young adults in residential settings.
Vaccine supplies permitting, we’ll be running clinics for patients in these groups over the coming weeks at The Pavilion on West Cliff.
If you are a patient in the fifth priority group (patients aged 65 and over), you may receive a letter from the NHS national booking service (NBS) inviting you to have your jab at a regional vaccination centre or pharmacy.
You can choose to access this service (the nearest ‘regional’ site is at Askham Bar, York and others are available), or you may prefer to wait to be contacted by the practice for an appointment closer to home. If you choose to decline the offer from the national service and wait for an appointment at one of our GP-led clinics, please be assured, you won’t be missed. We’ll be in touch with you at the appropriate time – you don’t need to call us.
