IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINICS
Over the last few weeks we have been working with our neighbouring practices in the Forest Heath Primary Care Network (GP surgeries in Mildenhall, Red Lodge Brandon, and Newmarket areas) to coordinate the setting up of a Covid-19 vaccination clinic for our local residents.
The final inspection took place yesterday morning at the Jubilee Centre, Mildenhall (at the back of Sainsbury’s) with members of the West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group and we are hoping to have confirmation of approval to use this site by the end of tomorrow. If we do get permission to proceed clinics should be starting towards the end of next week depending on vaccine delivery.
These clinics will be run on specific days jointly by staff from the above mentioned practices and will provide a vaccination service to our local population based on the clinical priority grouping defined by the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI).
ONCE WE RECEIVE FINAL APPROVAL FOR THE JUBILEE CENTRE TO BE USED FOR A COVID VACCVINATION CLINIC AND ONCE WE KNOW THE FIRST DAY THAT VACCINATIONS WILL BE DELIVERED, WE WILL BE CONTACTING ELIGIBLE PATIENTS DIRECTLY WITH DETAILS OF WHEN TO ATTEND THEIR APPOINTMENT.
IN THE MEANTIME PLEASE DO NOT RING ANY OF THE PRACTICES ABOVE OR THE JUBILEE CENTRE REGARDING THE VACCINE AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BOOK A COVID VACCINATION YOURSELF.
