Covid Vaccine Latest News
Covid Vaccine: latest news 18th January
- we have received more Pfizer vaccine and we are doing more vaccinating of over 80s at Chesham Town Hall this week. Everyone eligible has been contacted so please don't contact us. We hope to complete vaccinating the over 80s in the next couple of weeks, but it depends on when we get more vaccine deliveries. We will post here with more news
- the media is reporting that over 70s will start to be offered vaccination this week. This is being done at the mass vaccination hubs and people will be invited by a letter from the NHS. Please don't contact the surgery. More info for NHS's central vaccination scheme is at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/
- we are also getting some Oxford vaccine at the end of this week which will be used to vaccinate in care homes and housebound patients. Again, please wait for us to contact you
- if over 80s get a letter from the NHS inviting them to book a vaccination at one of the mass vaccination hubs, you can take this up or you can wait for an appointment locally by the end of January
- in future when we get more of the Oxford vaccine, it may be possible to start vaccinating at the surgery, but we await more guidance on this from NHS England
- Chiltern Dial-a-Ride have just announced that their free service will be continuing until the end of March and will be extended to provide transport for vaccine appointments for the elderly and those with mobility problems. Larger minibuses will mainly be used to enable distancing. Ring 07923 591955 and give at least 3 days’ notice of your need. Dial A Ride Info
- there were 48 Covid cases in our local area in the week beginning 3rd January. Do please keep following all the Government rules
Practices in the Mid Chilterns PCN are pleased to announce that they will be administering the first COVID-19 vaccinations (Pfizer BioNTech) to 975 of our most vulnerable patients from next Weds 6th January, at Chesham Town Hall.
NHS England has advised that our initial priority is to vaccinate those who are aged 80 years old and older. However, the vaccination supply for next week is limited stock (975 doses) and this will not be enough to vaccinate all our patients aged over 80 in the first instance. Therefore each practice will contact their most vulnerable patients within this group, and directly book them an appointment. Please be reassured ALL eligible patients, who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccination will receive one in due course. As soon as further supplies become available, you will be duly contacted.
NHS England has requested that patients do not contact practices to book the vaccination and we would ask you to adhere to this request in order to keep phone lines available for patient needing our care.
We are very excited to be able to start vaccinating our patients. We recognise you may feel disappointed if you are not contacted for next week’s vaccination. However, we do appreciate your patience and understanding in working together to deliver this important vaccination programme.

Key messages for patients
- The vaccine will be given in order of priority to those at highest risk first.
- We will be in contact with you with information about where and when you will need to receive the vaccine.
- Please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
- Please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
In the meantime, we would ask that people do not contact the practice about when the vaccine will be available or to try to book an appointment for it. There will be information for the public soon which will tell you when and where you can get the vaccine and how to book.” Thank you in advance.
