 Up-date Covid-19 Vaccination  - 15.02.2021

Neston Surgery is working extremely hard with our PCN Partners to ensure all patients received their first vaccine as soon as possible.

 If you are aged 70+ (only) and have not received your first vaccination please contact us.

In line with national guidance, we are now inviting patients from Group 6 - (Adults aged 16-64 in an at risk group), Please wait until you have received an invite from your surgery before ringing to book an appointment.

Patients in Group 5 - (Patients aged 65-70) are currently being invited by a letter to attend a mass vaccination site at Chester Racecourse by the NHS.   To attend the mass vaccination centre you can book online using the link below. The demand for appointments is very high and only contact the surgery if you are unable to attend the mass vaccination centre.

Once we have a delivery we will contact the patients, please avoid coming to the surgery to book your appointment as we have Covid-19 measures in place. The notification of delivery can be at very short notice and the Surgery Staff are working extremely hard to ensure all clinics are fully booked.

Depending on which vaccine we receive will determine which site it will be delivered from and we will informed you at the time of booking.

We would like to thank you for your continued support during this time.

We know that many people are eager to be vaccinated as soon as possible. We also understand that some patients will be concerned that they are not in the first groups for vaccination but may feel their circumstances or condition means they should be.
The decision about which order people are vaccinated in is set nationally by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Your local GP practice or individual GP is not allowed to vary from that priority order and is unable to make exceptions in individual cases. Your medical consultant or local counsellors are also unable to agree a variation from the national rules.
GP practices are working together to ensure they can vaccinate patients as quickly as possible and they appreciate your support in this regard and your understanding as they progress through the groups for vaccinations as quickly as possible.
