The practice is currently working in collaboration with other practices in the local area to plan the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme as quickly and effectively as possible.
Priority groups are currently being contacted by local hospitals and vaccinations are underway for those over 80 and living in care homes. As time progresses, we expect larger hubs to open in the local area hence increasing the capacity of vaccination appointments available.
We understand our patients are anxious, but ask you to be patient and wait to be contacted. We will make information available to you via the website and social media as soon as we know more. We are working as quickly as we possibly can and kindly request you do not contact the surgery about the vaccine.
Woodlands Surgery Flu Vaccination Programme 2020
In order to ensure your safety we will be running Saturday clinics for the flu vaccination from October this year. During these clinics we will be operating a one way system through the building to maintain social distancing.
If you are over 65 or between the age of 16-64 with an ongoing condtion and have not yet had your vaccination please contact reception to book
Those aged between 50-64 with no ongoing conditions will be contacted when the surgery has the vaccination in stock. There is no need to contact us before this time.
When you attend your appointment we ask that you do the following:
- Please wear a face covering and a short-sleeved top (not applicable to children)
- Please DO NOT attend if you have the any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, loss of taste/smell. If you are self-isolating, awaiting a Covid-19 test result, your household has suspected Covid-19, or you have travelled to a country under quarantine in the last 14 days you should not attend either.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
