COVID 19

WE ARE NOW MOVING CLOSE TO FINISHING ALL 1st DOSE VACCINATION CLINICS FOR ALL OUR ADULT PATIENTS.  IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD A VACCINE YET AND WANT TO RECEIVE YOUR VACCINATION LOCALLY YOU NEED TO CONTACT US NOW.

WE HAVE ALSO EMBARKED ON A PROGRAMME OF 2nd DOSE VACCINES THROUGH TO AUGUST. 

ALL MALTHOUSE SURGERY AND ABINGDON SURGERY PATIENTS WILL BE OFFERED TO HAVE THEIR VACCINE ADMINISTERED AT THE CHARTER, WHERE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL COUNCIL WE HAVE EXPANDED THE MALTHOUSE SURGERY SITE.

MASS VACCINATION SITES ARE OPEN AND THESE ARE BEING MANAGED NATIONALLY. LETTERS ARE BEING SENT DIRECTLY TO PATIENTS. IF YOU RECEIVE ONE OF THESE LETTERS IT WILL PROVIDE THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO BOOK YOUR VACCINATION AT ONE OF THESE SITES. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS BY PHONE OR ONLINE. THIS MAY MEAN YOU NEED TO TRAVEL FURTHER.

WHICHEVER OPTION YOU CHOOSE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE YOUR SECOND DOSE AT THE SAME PLACE WHERE YOU HAD YOUR FIRST DOSE AND THIS CANNOT BE CHANGED
