COVID 19 Vaccination Information:

Community COVID-19 vaccination programme in Sefton: Please read the following update from Southport & Formby Clinical Commissioning Group
GPs, working together with the CCGs are continuing to roll out the COVID-19 community vaccination programme in Sefton, which began at the end of December.
The NHS will get in touch when it is your turn to be vaccinated.
The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation (JCVI) about who is most at risk from Coronavirus. When each delivery of vaccine is received, it will be shared out fairly between practices in North & Central Southport. You may be required to remain on site for 15 minutes post-vaccination & a second dose of vaccine will be required; usually after 12 weeks.
Phase 1 - JCVI Priority Groups
- residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
- all those 65 years of age and over
- all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
- all those 60 years of age and over
- all those 55 years of age and over
- all those 50 years of age and over
Please note, there are a number of other vaccination sites who may offer you an appointment too: the large national sites, the community pharmacy sites & the Southport hospital site (health & social care workers are being vaccinated at the latter). The speed with which we can work through the JCVI priority cohorts is limited by the amount of vaccine that our site is allocated, & the need to vaccinate care home patients/staff first.
This is the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever undertaken. It is a huge challenge and we are working hard to overcome any logistical issues as they may arise. So, the exact weekly roll-out of the programme will be largely shaped by the vaccine supply from the manufacturers.
The NHS has a clear vaccine delivery plan but it will take some time for GP practices to work through the number of people that need to be contacted. So we are asking everyone to be patient and until people are fully vaccinated with two doses, they are reminded to follow the current restrictions and guidance and play their part by following these steps:
- Do not contact your GP practice or the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you
- When we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments
- Please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives by socially distancing, wearing a mask or face covering and washing your hands regularly
FOR PATIENTS WHO HAVE ALREADY HAD THEIR FIRST COVID VACCINE DOSE:
Please do not worry that you have not yet been given a date for your second vaccination, appointments will be issued once there is confirmation of our vaccine delivery date.
