COVID-19 VACCINE

Covid-19 vaccinations will be provided through a range of local NHS services.  The vaccines will be available to everyone over 18 years old.  People will be invited for vaccination based on a nationally set priority list.  The elderly and most at risk from Covid-19 will be vaccinated first.

As part of The Ridge PCN (a joint venture with Bearsted, Lenham, Headcorn, Langley and ourselves) we are pleased to say that with effect from 14 December 2020 the Covid vaccination programme will begin.

Please do not contact the Practice as eligible patients will be contacted according to the priority groups defined by the government.

As you may have seen on the news the vaccinations have strict storage requirements and they will be given at Glebe Medial Centre Church Road Harrietsham ME17 1AP.  Patients will need to be given 2 vaccinations.  The second vaccination will be 11 weeks later.
