Cancellation of Covid Vaccination Clinics - 11/12/13 January 2021
Posted on 14 Sep 2021
Notice regarding Covid-19 Vaccination : Cancellation of clinic 11th-13th January.
In Pendle East, we have now administered >1200 vaccines to our most vulnerable patients. By the end of next week we will be close to delivering a Covid-19 Vaccine to almost all of our over 80s and the residents in our 10 Care Homes.
Unfortunately, Government and NHS policy has very recently changed; the planned appointments for the 2nd dose that we expected to deliver have to be cancelled. We deeply regret this. We are not receiving a delivery of vaccine and we are very sorry for the upset and inconvenience that this may cause. If you have an appointment for the booster dose on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th or Wednesday 13th please do not attend.
We have been assured by Government advisers that the first dose offers sufficient protection for a few months and the second dose can be safely delayed. We will contact you to arrange your second dose. If by any chance you have not been contacted by us 10 weeks after your initial jab, please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.
Thank you for your patience as we deliver the most ambitious vaccination programme ever. Continue to follow Government advice to keep infection transmission low; this is the best thing that you can do to keep yourself, your family and our community as safe as possible.
