Vaccination Update 15th February 2021

Prioritisation groups 1-4

We have now invited all of our patients within the first 4 prioritisation groupings for vaccination and these vaccinations were completed on Sunday 14th February, this means that we have vaccinated around 10,000 patients within our Primary Care Network.

If you are in these groups and have not been vaccinated and would like to be then please email admin.deddington@nhs.net with the subject heading of ‘Group 1-4 requesting a vaccine’.

Prioritisation group 5 – those aged 65-69

We have been advised that NHS England will be issuing invitations to all of our group 5 cohorts (those aged 65-69) that have not already been vaccinated and that we should not be inviting group 5 patients for vaccination at our clinics at Chipping Norton Health Centre.

If you are aged 65-69 and would like your COVID vaccination please follow the instructions you will be given in the invitation from NHS England to book an appointment at one of the local mass vaccination centres.

We are being allocated limited stock of vaccines and have been directed to invite our group 6 cohorts (those aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions) to be vaccinated with the stock that we do receive.

If you are aged 65-69 and are not able to not attend a mass vaccination centre for some reason please email us at admin.deddington@nhs.net with the subject heading of ‘Cannot attend max vaccination centre’ and include the details of why you cannot attend the max vaccination centre. Do not phone Deddington Health Centre or Chipping Norton Health Centre, the reception team will not be able to assist you in this regard. If you choose not to visit a mass vaccination centre, it may be a longer wait for you to be vaccinated at Chipping Norton Health Centre.

Prioritisation group 6 – those aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions or carers

All of our group 6 cohorts will be sent a text message with a link to book their appointment. If you cannot use the link for some reason, please do not call Deddington Health Centre or Chipping Norton Health Centre, we will be making a follow up phone call to you anyway.

JCVI priority Cohort 6 includes ‘all individuals aged 16 years to 65 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality’. This also includes those who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill.

When you have your appointment booked please print and complete the form at the following link and take this form to your appointment with you, www.deddingtonsurgery.co.uk/patient-covid-19-suitability-assessment-form/

There are no current plans for vaccines to be done at Deddington Health Centre or for choosing which vaccine to have at any 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 for your vaccine.

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.
