Covid Vaccines Update & Priority Groups

The NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is underway. All of our eligible patients will receive an invitation to be vaccinated. according to the priority group in which they fall within.  The invitation will  come from our central contact team, to book an appointment either via text to their registered mobile number or a telephone call on their registered landline. Please do not contact us to get an appointment unless you have already received an invitation and not been able to book an appointment. 

Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccinations may not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.

Further information can be found within the North Central London CCG website and includes information about booking, local vacciantion sites, FAQs and leaflets. Please click here
