THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE WALK IN FLU CLINIC ON FRIDAY 12th NOVEMBER, ANOTHER 450 FLU VACCINE DELIVERED TO ADD TO THE 3000 DELIVERED IN EARLIER CLINICS DURING SEP & OCT. LOOK OUT FOR POSSIBLE FUTURE WALK IN CLINICS IN EARLY DEC.

COVID 19 VACCINE

AFTER 12 MONTHS (WE DELIVERED SOME OF THE FIRST VACCINES ON THE PLANET TO OUR PATIENTS LAST DECEMBER) AND NEARLY 40,000 1st, 2nd, 3rd AND BOOSTER VACCINATIONS DELIVERED LOCALLY, THE LAST ABINGDON CENTRAL PCN (MALTHOUSE & ABINGDON SURGERIES) COVID VACCINATION CLINIC WILL TAKE PLACE ON 24th NOV, WHICH IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.

WE HAVE STAYED WITH THE VACCINE PROGRAMME LONGER THAN MANY PRIMARY CARE HUBS TO GIVE OUR MOST ELDERLY POPULATION, CARE HOMES AND HOUSEBOUND PATIENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE A BOOSTER VACCINE LOCALLY.

OUR MAIN RESOURCE FOR DELIVERING THE VACCINE PROGRAMME HAS BEEN PRACTICE STAFF, SOME DOING HUNDREDS OF ADDITIONAL HOURS OVER THE PAST 12 MONTHS ABOVE THEIR NORMAL WORKING HOURS AND NOT TAKING THEIR FULL ANNUAL LEAVE IN 2021 TO SEE THE PROGRAMME THROUGH TO THIS STAGE.  CLEARLY THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE GOING FORWARD AND THESE STAFF ARE NOW LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK TO A MORE NORMAL WORK/LIFE BALANCE AS WE START THE NEW YEAR. 

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT FUTURE COVID VACCINATIONS AS AFTER NOVEMBER THE CHARTER DAY CARE CENTRE WILL BE HANDED BACK TO THE COUNCIL AND WE WILL NO LONGER HOLD STOCKS OF THE VACCINE.  

ALL FUTURE COVID VACCINATIONS WILL BE DELIVERED BY OTHER PROVIDERS.  WHEN YOU BECOME ELIGIBLE FOR A BOOSTER YOU WILL BE INVITED BY THE NHS TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT THROUGH THE NATIONAL BOOKING SERVICE AT A MASS VACCINATION SITE SUCH AS THE KASSAM OR POSSIBLY A LOCAL PHARMACY.
