The practice has been receiving a large number of calls relating to the COVID 19 vaccines. We are working in collaboration with all the other practices in the Sedgefield locality to deliver vaccinations to all current priority groups:
- Over 80s
- Care home residents & staff
- NHS staff & other selected key workers
- Over 75s
We are at present limited by supplies of the vaccine as to how quickly we can run these clinics. We hope more vaccines will be delivered in the coming weeks.
Some of you may have received letters about vaccination appointments at the Centre of Life in Newcastle. Patients are welcome to travel for this, however, be reassured that if you prefer to wait the practice will be in touch once appointments become available here.
We appreciate how keen all patients are to receive the vaccine but please wait for the practice to contact you.
The practice is unable to arrange tests for coronavirus. Tests are available online or by calling 119.
Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.
