Across the country COVID-19 vaccinations are being offered to everyone over the age of 70 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable. So far, most patients vaccinated from this practice have received their vaccination at Islip Village Hall which has proved to be very successful for which we have received very positive feedback from the patients that have visited Islip.
To speed up vaccinations being given, mass vaccination sites are opening up and are being managed nationally. Letters are being sent to patients aged over 70 that have not yet had their vaccination.
If you receive one of these letters it will provide the information you need to book your vaccination at one of the mass vaccination centres. You will be able to do this by phone or online. This may mean you get your vaccination sooner but you may need to travel further.
If you prefer, you can wait to be contacted by us and have your vaccination at Islip Village Hall. We are making really good progress and expect all patients over 70 to have had their vaccination by mid February.
Whichever option you choose, it is important to be aware that you will need to have your second dose at the same place where you had your first dose and this cannot be changed.
