COVID-19 Vaccination programme
We are pleased to advise that the Huntingdon Primary Care Network (Acorn Surgery, Hicks Group Practice, Papworth Surgery and Priory Fields Surgery) have agreement to participate in the Covid vaccination delivery programme for our patients.
It is anticipated that we will offer this service from a central, easily accessible location in Huntingdon as community hubs and we hope to be able to start vaccinating in the next 1-2 weeks.
If you are in one of the priority groups for vaccination and we do not have a current mobile phone number for you then please help us by emailing your mobile phone number along with your name, date of birth, address and agreement for us to communicate via text message to firstname.lastname@example.org
This will facilitate being able to make an appointment for your vaccination at the appropriate time. If you do not have a mobile phone then we will still make sure you are contacted regarding your appointment.
As per the NHS England advice please do not contact us about the vaccine at the moment, you will be contacted as soon as it is possible to arrange your vaccination.
We are currently planning the delivery of this service and the situation is changing on a daily basis. We would like to reassure you that we are keen to see that the coronavirus vaccination is offered to our patients as soon as possible.
We thank you for your ongoing support and patience
“Please wait to be invited for a Covid-19 vaccination. You may receive this via a letter or text message asking you to call us. Please be aware that we will never ask for payment for the Covid-19 vaccination and any text message requesting payment should be ignored.”
Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations.
The NHS will be starting to vaccinate the most at-risk priority groups, including over-80s and social care workers in local hospital hubs. The NHS will be starting to call people who fall into these priority groups over the coming weeks to book appointments for them.
You may have been called by Addenbrookes’ or Peterborough City Hospital to attend one of the first clinics at the hospital sites. You can choose to accept this appointment or wait until more clinics and locations are available in the community.
When more vaccines become available, the vaccines will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible. Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.
If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait. You can also find further information on the Covid-19 vaccine here.
Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
