You will be invited to get a Vaccination.
Vaccination invitations and appointments are essential. Please do not contact your GP or turn up without an appointment.
600,000 people nationwide aged 80 or over, are already receiving letters inviting them to book appointments at the Large Vaccination Centres next week.
If you already have an appointment booked with your GP, you can simply ignore the letter.
If you receive a letter but would prefer to be vaccinated at a GP service, pharmacy, hospital, or at home if you are housebound, you can simply ignore the letter.
Vaccinations closer to home
“we want to reassure everyone that they can still choose to receive their vaccination closer to home and do not need to travel out of the county unless they wish to.”Dave Evans, Joint Accountable Officer for NHS Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Telford & Wrekin CCG
Seven large National vaccination centres are opening this week at various places around the country. These add to the sites already open at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt in Gobowen and the local vaccination sites at Bridgnorth and Malinslee, Telford.
More Vaccination Centres opening soon
The NHS are arranging for other locations in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. These include local vaccine services by GPs and pharmacists and even in people’s homes for the housebound.
