Lindley Councillors, Cllr Burke, Cllr Eastwood & Cllr Smith have been volunteering at Cathedral House supporting the NHS with the Covid-19 vaccination process.
At the moment, GPs are offering vaccinations to people aged 80 and over and care home residents and will then move to other age groups in descending order.
Practices are busy contacting eligible patients to make appointments for their first vaccination as supplies are made available to them but it is likely take several weeks to cover everyone in these first groups.GPs, nurses, pharmacists and countless other staff, partners and volunteers are working around the clock to provide vaccinations. We know people are eager get protected and may be concerned if they are in one of the priority cohorts and have not been contacted yet.
However, we would like to reassure them that they will be contacted over the next few weeks.Services are extremely busy at the moment and we would ask people to help the NHS at this very difficult time by not contacting their local GP or other NHS services about getting a vaccination.
People will not be able to book an appointment until they have been invited to do so, so please be patient and we will contact you as soon as it is your turn.https://www.northkirkleesccg.nhs.uk#Lindley#covid_19
