GP Practices have been asked to support NHS England to deliver the largest vaccination programme the country has seen and we are all supporting the National campaign.
Unlike other vaccination programmes, such as flu, vaccination will not be provided from each Practice. NHS England has asked for groups of Practices to come together to provide vaccination from a central location, this will take place in Poringland and will be in line with NHS and Care Quality Commission (C.Q.C) standards to ensure safe vaccination.
Vaccine supply will be limited in the first instance. There are characteristics of the vaccine that mean there are restrictions to the number of patients vaccinated safely in a day.
All patients vaccinated are required to remain under observation in the centre for 15 minutes after receiving their vaccination; we need to also respect social distancing guidelines during this time.
The Government has announced the priority groups for vaccination and are starting with invitations to those patients. Those in eligible groups will receive a telephone call from one of the South Norfolk Healthcare booking team in due course.
Please do not contact the practice as this will help to keep surgery telephone lines free for other patient needs. Thank you.
