Important Update – COVID-19 Vaccine
If you are a healthcare worker but not employed by the NHS and would like the COVID jab please email us at email@example.com with your name, date of birth and job role.
Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and is now available to priority groups.
Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
COVID JAB PRIORITY LIST:
- All those who are 80 years of age and clinically extremely Vulnerable & health & social care workers
- All those who are over 90
- All those over 85 with 3LTC/2LTC/1LTC/ zero LTC
- All those over 80 with 3LTC/2LTC/1LTC/ zero LTC
- All those over 75 with 3LTC/2LTC/1LTC/ zero LTC

- All those aged 60 and over

- Everyone else
The vaccinations may not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.
We would encourage every patient has this vaccine when it becomes available to them.
The first cohort is underway and we have started inviting patients. So far we have been inviting patients to 2 sites Newcastle Eagles , Scotswood Road NE4 7AF & Newcastle Racecourse, High Gosforth Park NE3 5HP. .

In recognition of this and due to the high level of pressure on our services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we are therefore no longer in a position to provide this service
