Covid-19 Vaccination Update: 14th April 2021

Despite recent media announcements, we still await authorisation in order to be able to begin vaccinating those patients aged under 50 who are not ‘at risk’. We are told this will be imminent but cannot book any patients at the present time. Even with this authorisation, due to a national shortage, we are not expecting to be able offer many new appointments for at least the rest of April.

Please be assured we will invite younger age groups (in age order) as soon as we are in a position to do so. We will contact you, please do not contact reception.
