UPDATE ON COVID VACCINES:
We are delighted to continue our roll-out of the Covid 19 vaccination programme.
We will take advice from the HSE regarding which groups should be vaccinated in order, as per the Government priority list, which is available here: Covid 19 vaccination allocation
- We have now completed our first vaccines for all of our over 70s and second doses for our over 80s this week .
- We had hoped to roll out vaccination to our high risk under 60s patients in the near future however this may be affected as it was dependent on using the Astra Zeneca vaccine. We await further instruction from NIAC and the HSE on this matter.
- We will be unable to answer any questions in relation to the Astra Zeneca vaccine until we have further information so please bear with us. You may find the following information helpful Astra Zeneca Vaccine
- Registration for those aged 65 to 69 to receive their Covid Vaccine is now open. The link to the website where you can register is here
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 70s in high risk groups so there is NO NEED to call the surgery at this time.
For patients who are under 70 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.
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 13 months.
