The local NHS will contact people in the priority groups when it is their turn to receive the vaccine and local residents are being asked not to contact their practice enquiring about vaccination

Frontline workers - there will be a dedicated Vaccination Hub set up in due course by the CCG.

NHS are not able to vaccinate everyone all at once - it will be a relatively small number at first - but NHS has already made a good start vaccinating vulnerable patients. Patients will be contacted and invited for vaccination - NHS urges patients not to contact their practice enquiring about vaccination, NHS will contact you.
