COVID-19 VACCINE ROLL OUT
All our patients over 80 years have now received their second dose of vaccine. The next cohort for second doses will be for our patients in the 70-79 year age group. The next clinic for 1st doses will be for the remainder of patients aged over 70 years. These clinics will run the week of April 26th. We will be administrating the Pfizers Cominarty Covid 19 vaccine during these clinics. An online booking tool will be utilised for vaccine clinics. Patients eligible for clinics will be sent a link to book in for their Covid-19 vaccine. We will contact all patients when it is there turn to be vaccinated. For patients who are aged 18-59 and in certain groupings within the very high risk group Category 4, these patients will be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine. In the next month or so it is likely we will also be doing high risk patients in Category 7.
