Covid Vaccination update – 7th January 2021

Due to the nature of this vaccine and the need to reduce wastage, and work at scale, we have joined forces with 8 other Newbury practices including Lambourn and Hungerford.

We will be delivering the vaccine from the Grandstand building at Newbury Racecourse. We realise this is not as convenient for our patients, in that there will be a need to travel, but because of the delivery logistics and the need to deliver at scale we cannot do this from the surgery at this stage.

We will be starting vaccinations during week commencing the 11th January. We have not yet had exact confirmation on the dates.

As soon as we have this, we will start calling the first cohort which is the over 80’s.

The housebound patients will be vaccinated by ourselves and not the district nurses and there are plans being drawn up to ensure we achieve this and the care home vaccinations also, as quickly as possible.

Please do not call us, we will call you to book in your appointment in order of priority according to the National Criteria which we are unable to deviate from.

We are very excited to begin work on this vaccination programme, please bear with us, we are all working very hard to bring this to you as fast and as safely as we can.
