UPDATE ON COVID VACCINES:
We are still waiting for confirmation on when we are likely to be receiving Covid vaccines for our patients and also, very importantly, how many vaccines we will receive
We will take advice from the HSE regarding which groups should be vaccinated first:
- It is likely that our patients over the age of 85 will be vaccinated first followed by other age groups down to the over 65s.
- The under 65s with chronic medical conditions are likely to be next as per the Government priority list, which is available here: Covid 19 vaccination allocation
Over the next few weeks our practice manager and administration staff will be in touch with those who will be due to receive the vaccine to give them further information on how the process will work.
We have lists of all our patients in those age categories and all of our under 65s in high risk groups so there is NO NEED to call the surgery at this time.
For patients who are under 65 in the high risk groups you DO NOT need to get a letter from your hospital consultant stating your medical condition as we have your history on file
We have a clear plan in place to run a structured and safe vaccination clinic once vaccine supplies are received
WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE CARE TO ALL DURING COVID
In the meantime we continue to offer phone / video consultations initially to try to maintain footfall in the surgery as low as possible for the safety of everyone.
The laboratory in Navan is still operating at reduced capacity due to Covid restrictions so we are still only providing bloods which are considered urgent or very essential.
If you are due your smear test please book it as we continue to offer this service.
We still aim to keep all face to face consultations as brief as possible to reduce any risk of transmission of the newer, more highly contagious Covid strains.
Once again thank you all for your understanding and support over the past 11 months.
