All vaccinations will still be via Geoffrey Street Health Centre and the next available clinics will be on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th January.

COVID VACCINATION ROLLOUT- Message from Clinical Services Manager

At PSM Medical Group the Covid vaccine programme is being delivered alongside routine work and whilst still delivering the flu vaccination programme. We will be vaccinating patients based on the age priority list as issued by HM Government. Patients over the age of 80 being first and as a practice we have begun vaccinating patients based on the age priority list. Only patients with a booked appointment will be vaccinated.

Patients will require a second dose however this will now be given at weeks 9-12 and not week 3 in line with recently published government guidelines. Patients will be given the same vaccine for the second dose as the first dose.

In order to deliver the covid vaccination programme we are working with 9 other local surgeries within our Primary Care Network (PCN). Due to the temperature/storage requirements of the vaccine and the fact we only have a limited amount of days to use the vaccine once delivered, appointment dates are limited and these clinics will be based at Geoffrey Health Centre, Preston. We are working to extremely short turnaround times once we have confirmation of delivery of this vaccine in order to book patients an appointment.

The Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine is also now available and appointments for this vaccine are also offered at Geoffrey Health Centre. 

All eligible patients will be contacted by text or telephone. Over time all patients within the priority groups who wish to have the vaccine will be able to have the vaccine. However we ask that you are patient. We are unable to advise in advance any upcoming clinic dates as the current delivery schedule for the vaccines is very sporadic.

Patients’ who have not yet been contacted, will be contacted as more deliveries dates are confirmed. NHS England are managing and coordinating delivery nationally.

Our phone lines are extremely busy and it is important that patients who need medical care are able to access our telephone lines so we therefore ask that you do not ring us about this, we will contact you when we receive notification of further vaccine supply.

Thank you for your patience.
