Covid Vaccine Rollout - Nantwich and Rural Care Community

Covid Vaccine Rollout

Our covid-19 vaccination programme continues at Nantwich Civic Hall.

Please help us deliver the programme by following this simple guidance :

Patients aged 65 or older who have not yet had their coronavirus vaccine but would like one are now being asked to contact the NHS. A NATIONAL ONLINE BOOKING SYSTEM can be accessed for this OR patients can call 119 free of charge between 7am and 11pm.

Aside from this cohort all patients will receive an invitation to book their vaccination either by text or phone call directly from their GP Practice. PLEASE DO NOT contact the NHS to seek a vaccine without this notification as patients will be invited in specific groups according to the priority order as shown in this poster from Public Health England

Given the current pressures on the NHS our GP Practices are working hard to deliver the Vaccination Programme and to ensure everyone’s safety. please be assured that GP Practices are still open as normal for routine appointments.

The NHS will only receive each vaccine batch at quite short notice. We would therefore kindly ask for your understanding that you might receive your notification also at relatively short notice.

Please be vigilant of any suspicious notifications and be mindful that you will NEVER be asked for bank details.

For all the guidance you need in advance of your vaccination, including questions and answers and links to further information on both the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and the Oxford/Astrazeneca vaccine, please click on the NHS Coronavirus Vaccination Information page.

 

Don Marshall, aged 86, from Hatherton has become the first person within Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination – a landmark moment in the fight against coronavirus.

Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network commenced their Covid 19 vaccination programme on Thursday 7th January at Nantwich Civic Hall. The site will continue to host the ongoing programme.

Mr Marshall said: “We must all support the advisors and the NHS in their endeavour to beat this pandemic. I am, therefore, delighted to be receiving the vaccine today. Well done to all the researchers and staff”.

David Holden, Clinical Lead for Nantwich and Rural Primary Care Network said: “We have worked really hard to get this site ready to begin the Covid 19 Vaccination Programme and we are really delighted to be able to begin vaccinating patients in the Nantwich and Rural area”.
