Covid-19 Vaccine Update – 8th December, 2020
The Pfizer BionTech vaccine has now been approved for use and the NHS will be starting to offer this to priority groups as soon as supplies arrive. Initially, it will be only be available at a few hospital hubs where it can be stored safely and it will be offered to those most at risk of Covid-19 first. The first limited supplies are due to arrive in our area in mid-December.
When further supplies or alternative vaccines become available, they will be offered from a number of different locations to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. We will share these details with patients as soon as they are confirmed.
Please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine as there is not currently any further information available and it may stop someone who needs urgent medical help getting through to us.
