COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign Update – Friday 26th March 2021
The Practice have now invited all eligible patients in the priority groups allocated to us by Powys Teaching Health Board in for their first AstraZeneca vaccination. The patients invited by us were identified by lists provided to us from the Health Board and were within the below national priority groups:
- 18 + - Clinically extremely vulnerable adults (shielding)
- 18 – 50 years – adults with underlying health conditions
- Mop up lists for patients aged over 80 and over 70 who were not able to attend the mass vaccination site in Bronllys.
We will be commencing second vaccine appointments for everyone who received their first vaccination from the practice from w/c 12th April.
Powys Teaching Health Board have informed us that all vaccinations for people aged 50 – 64 are being delivered through the Mass Vaccination Centres and at this stage we have no further information on any other groups.
Please note that Powys Teaching Health Board are not asking practices for any further support in delivering vaccinations at this time and we will not be receiving any vaccine supplies other than to complete our second dose appointments. Please do not contact the Practice for an appointment or with any vaccination queries.
The Practice continues to respond to many patient queries and frustrations around having to travel to the mass vaccination sites for their vaccinations. We encourage our patients to attend for vaccinations wherever this is delivered as part of the national campaign.
The practice will continue to deliver as many vaccinations to our patients as possible in accordance with the instructions of the Local Health Board and supply of vaccinations. .
