Covid-19 Vaccination Update: 15th May 2021

Over 25,500 Whitstable Medical Practice patients have received at least their first dose of covid vaccination. Nearly 15,000 patients have now completed the vaccination course.

We are now inviting all patients aged 30 and over to contact us urgently to book for vaccination. Please contact your usual reception now to book.

Patients awaiting their second dose should only contact us if approaching (or over) the 12 week interval. We are aware of new Government guidelines and will be working to bring patients closer to an 8 week interval. At the present time however we cannot move any patients due to uncertainty over vaccine delivery. We will contact you when appropriate, please do not contact reception about this.

Details of priority groupings and current progress are below for your information.

We must continue to request that wherever possible all patients have someone chauffeur them to their appointment. This will ensure there are no delays in getting your vaccine and also prevents congestion. There are an array of fantastic taxi companies locally who have brought hundreds of patients through. If you are unable to organise a chauffeur you will have to leave your vehicle, queue outdoors and receive your vaccination in a separate mobile unit. This could be unpleasant if weather conditions are poor so please be warned!!

Thank you for your continued patience and support.
