Covid Vaccine Developments

The Team at Mitcheldean Surgery are currently working with other practices in the Forest of Dean to plan the delivery of vaccines across the area.

While there are some very promising announcements being made by the Government, We have yet to receive detailed information about when the vaccines will be delivered.  Please be assured, however, that we are working hard to ensure that as soon as the vaccines become available we will be ready to start the programme according to the Government’s priorities.

While hospitals and care homes may start to receive deliveries soon to vaccinate the most vulnerable patients, GP surgeries may not receive supplies until the New Year.  We will share further information as soon as we have it.

We ask all patients to please not call the Surgery just to ask about the Covid vaccine – we have no further information to give you.

In the meantime please continue to observe local tier restrictions and social distancing guidelines. You can find out more here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

Thank you.
