COVID Vaccinations – please help ensure everyone in the top 4 priority groups in our communities has access to a vaccination and has not been missed
Anyone 70 or over OR anyone who has previously received a letter saying that they are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable) who has not yet received a vaccination can now choose to:
a. Book their own vaccination at one of the Vaccination Centres (e.g. Artrix in Bromsgrove or Knights Pharmacy in Redditch) without waiting for an invite letter from the NHS by going online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by telephoning 119; OR
b. If they prefer, they can still wait to be contacted by their GP to attend at their local GP led vaccination service.
Please Note: GPs have asked that we do not encourage the public to ring their GP practice about a vaccination (due to the sheer volume and that this prevents people with other illnesses getting through on the phonelines) and that the messages should predominantly promote the booking system link above and the 119 number.
