❓ We are receiving a large number of comments and questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations programme.
💉Clinics have now been launched at @BlackpoolTeachingHospitals and a number of community sites run by GP practices. These clinics have been aimed primarily at those aged over 80.
📞 Please be assured that if you are over 80 and have not been contacted yet, or have a friend or relative who is still waiting, they will be offered a vaccine soon.
📝 Along with all our other local GP practices, we have drawn up lists of eligible patients and we will book appointments and vaccinate everyone on those lists just as soon as possible.
🏡 Vaccination clinics in the community are being run by a designated practice for each area. In Lytham St Annes that practice is Fernbank Surgery located in the Primary Care Centre in Lytham. The Lytham St Annes practices are organising the administering of vaccinations to patients of all 6 practices in Lytham St Annes and this means when you are invited for your vaccination it may not be your own GP practice that contacts you, but the local vaccinations service.
🆕 The new Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine is being directed initially to people who are housebound or living in care homes, but with more vaccines now becoming available we are confident more people will be vaccinated quickly.
🚫 We would like to thank you for your patience at this time and ask that you do not contact us to book a vaccine. We will be in touch as soon as we possibly can.
Thank you 🙏
