COVID-19 Vaccination Invitations
Posted on 9 Mar 2021
The national booking service has begun to invite patients aged below 65 by letter and text message to have their COVID-19 vaccination at a Mass Vaccination Site.
Here at Weedon Surgery we are currently working through Cohort 6 which includes patients aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions and their carers.
If you are under the age of 65 and do not have an underlying health condition or caring responsibility, we are currently unable to vaccinate you at Weedon Surgery. If you want your vaccine immediately please follow the instructions in your letter/text message and book at a Mass Vaccination Site.
Otherwise you will have to wait until we have finished the current Cohort. We are vaccinating as fast as our supply allows us to. We hope to have completed Cohort 6 by the start of the week commencing 22nd March. We will then move onto Cohort 7 (all patients aged 60-64). Following this we will move onto Cohort 8 (patients aged 55-59) and then Cohort 9 (ages 50-54).
Please refrain from calling or emailing the surgery to book your vaccine unless you have received a text message from us specifically inviting you to book your vaccination.
For 2nd doses of the vaccine, invitations will be sent out 10 weeks after the 1st vaccine was administered. If you have not heard anything after 75 days since the 1st do get in touch to organise your 2nd dose.
