The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.
The vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
We have nominated Trevelyan House Surgery as a local vaccination hub and expect vaccinations to start at the beginning of January.
We will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. It’s important not to contact the practice for a vaccination before then. We will post further information on our websites as dates are confirmed and contact you if you are in an eligible group.
At this time, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals to:
- some people aged 80 and over who already have a hospital appointment in the next few weeks
- people who work in care homes
- health care workers at high risk
Meanwhile, we must all continue to adhere to stick to the local tier restriction rules and remember hands, face, space.
