COVID Vaccinations UPDATE 12.02.21

Prioritisation groups 1-4

We have now invited all of our patients within the first 4 prioritisation groupings for vaccination. By the end of Sunday 14th February we will have vaccinated all of those that have accepted the invitation and this will mean we have vaccinated around 10,000 patients in total.

Prioritisation group 5 – those aged 65-69

We have been advised that NHS England will be issuing invitations to all of our group 5 cohorts (those aged 65-69) and that we should not be inviting group 5 patients for vaccination at the Health Centre.

If you are aged 65-69 and would like your COVID vaccination please follow the instructions you will be given in the invitation from NHS England to book an appointment at one of the local mass vaccination centres. 

We are being allocated limited stock of vaccines and have been directed to invite our group 6 cohorts (those aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions) to be vaccinated with the stock that we do receive.

If you are aged 65-69 and you wish to not attend a mass vaccination centre for some reason please email us at cnhc.covidadmin@nhs.net . Do not phone the health centre, the care navigators will not be able to assist you in this regard. If you choose not to visit a mass vaccination centre, it may be a longer wait for you to be vaccinated at Chipping Norton.

Prioritisation group 6 – those aged 16-64 with underlying health conditions

All of our group 6 cohorts will be sent a text message with a link to book their appointment. If you cannot use the link for some reason, please do not call the Health Centre, we will be making a follow up phone call to you anyway.

Prioritisation group 6 – Adult unpaid carers

If you are an adult unpaid carer (those who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill) – please email us at cnhc.covidadmin@nhs.net with the word CARER in the title. We have many patients recorded as carers however sometimes circumstances change and these records are not always up to date. If you let us know you are a carer/you remain a carer still, we will be able to invite you for vaccination. Please give us the details (with the persons consent) of who you care for, including their name, date of birth, a contact telephone number and also which GP surgery they are registered with.
