This week we have been concentrating on vaccinating the housebound patients, this is now happening across the Mid-Furness Primary Care Network (Ulverston, Dalton, Askam, Kirkby & Broughton).
We have a small vaccine clinic taking place tomorrow morning, which is now fully booked, our next vaccination clinic with availability, is at Ulverston Health Centre on Saturday 13th February.
We are still working our way through the clinically extremely vulnerable group and patients aged 70-75 years, and these are our priority for the clinic. Staff are working over the weekend to get this session booked.
We are aware of the mass vaccination site that is due to open at GSK in Ulverston this week. This is a completely separate service from the one we are running in the health centre and we have no involvement in setting this up or running it.
Many of the PCN patients will receive invitations to attend the health centre as well as the GSK site. We realise that this is confusing for patients but unfortunately this duplication is beyond or control. Please bear with us as we try to continue our work in parallel to the new site. If we send you a text invite but you have already booked at GSK please do reply with ‘decline’ so we know.
Patients are also asking about the second vaccine. Clearly this is still some weeks away and we will be offering all of those whom we have vaccinated in the health centre this second dose. Appointments will be sent nearer the time when the issues around vaccine supply are clearer.
We continue to work closely with other practices in the PCN to facilitate these clinics and are thankful to our colleagues at Dr Murray’s for their hard work with the management of the programme.
Thank you all for the continued support.
