Covid-19 Vaccinations Update – April 2021

COVID Vaccine Roll-Out

The practice is very proud to have been part of the national efforts to vaccinate our local population with covid vaccinations as part of phase 1 (groups 1-9) of the national vaccine roll out programme.  Working collectively with our colleagues as part of Minerva PCN alongside colleagues from BEMS, Unity PCN and Heart of Bath, we have delivered over 30,000 first doses via the Pavilion Vaccination Clinic.

Thanks to the tremendous effort by our teams, we have been able to roll out of the vaccines very effectively, and we are delighted that so many of our patients have been vaccinated.

 

Patients In Cohorts 1-9 Awaiting 2nd Doses

We are now focusing on the roll out of the 2nd vaccinations for those patients who had their first vaccination with us and these patients will be invited to attend for their second vaccine in due course.  If we have your mobile phone number, you will be sent a link on your mobile phone to book or if we do not have an up to date mobile number for you, we will call your land line.  Please respond to your invite as soon as you can.  Thank you.

 

Patients Not in Cohorts 1-9

As the country moves in to phase 2 of the vaccination programme (adults aged 18-49 without specific underlying health conditions).  NHS England will text or write to patients in this group advising when it is your turn to book for an appointments.
