We just wanted to update all patients about where the practice is with the roll out of COVID vaccines. In our previous update we explained that we are working with all practices across Worcester city to deliver the vaccines, all of this information still applies.
We are pleased to say that we are now starting to invite patients in cohort 5 of the government priority lists. This is anyone aged over 65. If you are in this cohort please wait for us to contact you and do not call the surgery.
That means that we have tried to offer everyone in cohort 1- 4 an appointment now. Cohort 1-4 is anyone aged 70 and over or anyone whose medical conditions make them extremely at risk of COVID-19 and have been written to by the government and asked to shield.
We will be contacting anyone in these cohorts who have not had the vaccine yet and we have not been able to get hold of yet, by calling or writing to make sure every patient who is currently eligible is aware they can book a vaccine appointment.
If you are in cohort 1-4 (aged 70 and over or extremely high risk) and have not had the vaccine then please do call the surgery and we will make sure you are booked in for the vaccine.
We are also aware that some patients are being invited to the St Peter’s church vaccination centre, please be aware this is being ran separately to the practice’s Covid vaccine arrangements.
Best wishes from the Doctors and teams at Haresfield & Kempsey surgeries
