COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINICS
The North Oxfordshire Rural Alliance (NORA), which includes Chipping Norton Health Centre, have now been vaccinating patients since the 15th December 2020.
Due to the size of the building and the space it can offer, Chipping Norton Health Centre is the chosen site for the COVID-19 vaccination clinics and all patients registered with one of the NORA practices will be required to attend the centre to receive their vaccination.
We will contact you when it is time for you to receive your COVID-19 vaccination.
Please do not call us to ask when you will be vaccinated.
We are currently vaccinating prioritisation group 6 (those aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions) & adult unpaid carers.
We are carefully planning our recall for our patients using the prioritisation guidance criteria issued by the NHS. See below JCVI prioritisation groups –
1.Residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults
2.All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
3.All those 75 years of age and over
4.All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (not including pregnant women and those under 16 years of age)
5.All those 65 years of age and over
6.Adults aged 16 to 65 years in an at-risk group & adult unpaid carers
7.All those 60 years of age and over
8.All those 55 years of age and over
9.All those 50 years of age and over
10.Rest of the population (to be determined)
There is strict guidance detailing that the vaccine is not suitable for some patients due to their health conditions. This information must all be taken into account when inviting our patients to be vaccinated. It is advised that those with previous severe anaphylaxis should have a discussion with their GP before they can be vaccinated.
This vaccination cannot be given opportunistically and must be given within a dedicated clinic appointment.
The vaccination programme will be ongoing throughout 2021, and all eligible patients will be recalled in due course.
