Covid-19: Over 70s and Vulnerable People

Home » News » Over 70s and Vulnerable People

Addendum to Today's Urgent Message
Covid

Today we publish an appeal by Village Surgeries Group for you to avoid unnecessary calls to the Surgery to book Covid-19 vaccinations. Currently this applies mostly to groups aged 69 and under; procedures are in hand to offer appointments to these people.

Over 70s and vulnerable people who have not yet had a vaccination appointment for whatever reason are invited to take the following action, as described earlier this month on the gov.uk website.

"People aged 70 and over who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID and who would like to be are today being asked to contact the NHS to arrange a jab.

Until now the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted to help ensure that those who are most vulnerable are protected first — and that remains the case for most people.

However, to ensure absolutely everyone is offered the vaccine, people aged 70 and over can now contact the NHS so they can be vaccinated by the middle of this month.

The easiest way to arrange a vaccination is through the national booking service which can be accessed at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.

The system allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them.

Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week."
