****COVID VACCINATION UPDATE****
as of 15.02.21
We are contacting all eligible patients to invite them for their COVID vaccination. We will contact all eligible patients in line with government specified criteria, appointment and vaccination availability, therefore, PLEASE DO NOT contact the Practice at this time regarding your COVID Vaccination booking. Our phone lines remain extremely busy and all staff are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID vaccination programme whilst maintaining normal services.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support at this time.
COVID VACCINATION UPDATE FOR HEALTH & SOCIAL CARE WORKERS (25.01.21)
Recently, some patients have responded to our text message making us aware that they work in health or social care. We have since received the following update regarding this matter via East Riding of Yorkshire CCG:
“The vaccination of health and social care staff has now started within Humber, Coast and Vale. Hospital hubs and large vaccination centres are now starting to contact those organisations and staff groups identified by CCGs, local authorities and other provider organisations which will have staff who fall into this category. Whilst there is commitment to ensuring that all of the health and social care workforce receive their vaccination, a programme of this size will take time. We politely request that you remain patient. Everyone will receive an invitation to have a vaccination and efforts will be focused to ensure this programme runs as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
