IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS VACCINATION PROGRAMME
COVID-19 Vaccination programme roll out update - 05.03.2021
We are still currently working through priority group 6 (those aged 18-65 who are in an at-risk group). Most of these patients have been contacted via text message or directly from their surgeries and invited to attend for vaccination.
If you are in group 6 and have not yet been contacted, please be patient. This is a very large group and we are actively working through the cohort list.
If you are in priority groups 5 (aged 65-69) or 7 (aged 60-64) you may have already received or will shortly receive a letter inviting you to one of the mass vaccination centres.
You can book your vaccine slot directly by following the instructions in the letter. We encourage people to attend these centres for their COVID vaccinations, where possible.
If you are unable to attend one of the mass vaccination sites and want your COVID vaccination through your GP surgery, please be patient. We WILL contact you in due course.
All vaccinations through the Fenland PCN take place at The Doddington Hospital and we are dependent on vaccine delivery.
The message for all other patients who fall outside of the current priority groups remains the same – stay safe, sit tight and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn.
We encourage patients to organise their own transport to attend the vaccination hub where possible and we encourage family and friends to support anyone who needs help safely accessing their vital vaccination appointment.
However, if you need help with transport, Cambs County Council are centrally gathering information of DBS checked volunteer drivers county wide and patients can call Cambridgeshire Covid Hub: 0345 045 5219 to book (possibly free transport) once you have an appointment.
In addition there is:
Community Care Scheme Fenland – 07944 814156 (small cover to cover fuel)
FACT – 01354 661234 – specialist adapted vehicles (cost involved)
