We are now running Covid Vaccination clinics here at Corbridge Health Centre using the Astra Zeneca vaccine. We have now invited all those in Group 7 (patients aged 60-64) and will soon move onto Group 8 (patients aged 55-59). The national vaccination programme has already sent letters to these patients inviting them to book at one of the mass vaccination centres. These letters have caused considerable confusion because patients assume we are also vaccinating at the same rate and these centres have very few appointments available locally. Please just ignore the letter if you prefer to be vaccinated here and you are happy to wait for the practice to contact you. You will not be missed.
Meanwhile, we are also currently contacting Group 2 patients (those aged over 80) to arrange their 2nd dose appointments. The 2nd dose Pfizer vaccines will be given at Hexham Primary Care Centre and 2nd dose Astra Zeneca will be given here at Corbridge Health Centre. Please use our text message to book your appointment if you can or wait for a member of our staff to contact you.
