We are now starting to call patients for their 2nd dose COVID vaccinations.
If you had your Pfizer vaccine in mid-January, you should receive a text from our colleagues at Millbrook Surgery or a phone call from us to book your appointment for your second dose in the next day or two.
Clinics are Wednesday to Saturday this week at our GP practice hub at Wincanton Community Hospital. As before, please wear a mask, arrive on time for your appointment and you will need to be observed for 15 minutes after your vaccination. If you’ve had another vaccination (eg flu or shingles) within the last 14 days you should not have your COVID vaccination and do not attend the clinic if you have Covid symptoms.
If you have any difficulties booking your appointment, please contact us at the surgery.
The national programme asks patients to return to the site of their first dose for their second vaccination. All patients will be contacted for their second dose – timing will depend on the delivery of vaccines to us, and which vaccines we receive. Patients should be contacted around week 10-11 so please don’t panic if you’re reached week 9 and haven’t heard yet.
The practice team is working extremely hard to co-ordinate and deliver this programme across the 5 practices and with the clinic at a separate site. So far, we’ve delivered about 12,000 vaccinations which has been an amazing effort by all staff and volunteers.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
