Welcome to Eastview Surgery

NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme update

Our GP-led local vaccination service is providing vaccinations to people in priority groups 1-9 and this will continue.

We will not be providing a vaccination service for people aged 18 to 49 when they become eligible. If you are in this group, you will be able to get your vaccine at other local vaccination services including, community pharmacies and larger vaccination centres.

 

What this means for you?

Cohorts 1-9
Includes those aged 50 and over, health and care workers, unpaid carers and those with a health condition that puts them at greater risk
.

We are continuing to book in people in priority groups 1-9 who have not yet been vaccinated for their first dose and we will carry on doing this to make sure that no-one is left behind.

If you are eligible and haven’t had your first dose yet, please contact the practice now to make your appointment.

We will be able to give the second dose to everyone who has had their first dose of the vaccine with us. We will invite you for your second dose when this is due.

 

Cohorts 10-12

People aged 18 to 49

Vaccinations have been delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

If you are aged 18 to 49, you will be contacted by the NHS when it is your turn and you will be able to choose from a range of local vaccination services including community pharmacies and larger regional vaccination centres.

When your age group becomes eligible, you will be able to book your vaccine and choose a local service through the national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119.

 

Please do not contact us to get an appointment. Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.
