Patients will be contacted when we are in a position to offer appointments to their cohort and will be required to attend for their vaccine at Chipping Norton Health Centre. Please do not call the Practice about your COVID vaccine as we are busy dealing with our patients who require GP or nurse appointments and calling patients in our current priority group to book them in.

There are no current plans for vaccines to be done at Deddington Health Centre or for choosing which vaccine to have at the clinic, we will update this notice if either of those change.

Deliveries are currently at short notice and so we may contact you to attend at short notice to for your vaccine.

We are now starting to send out electronic invitations to book appointments, this is a national system approved for use by NHS Digital and will significantly help to reduce the workload for our practice teams.

We are waiting for further guidance on second dose vaccines and will update this notice when we know more, patients will be contacted when we are able to offer second doses of the vaccine.
