COVID-19 vaccine

30/11/2020

You will have seen on the news that the NHS is preparing to roll out a vaccination programme for COVID-19. At this stage we do not have an approved vaccine. Before any vaccines are approved for use they go through a strict process of clinical trials and safety checks. Your GP practice is working with other NHS providers, and our healthcare partners, so that we are ready to offer the vaccine as soon as it becomes available and is approved for use.

Vaccines will be offered from a number of different locations in Leeds to make sure everyone who needs a vaccine is able to get one. We will share these details with our patients as soon as we know.

For information about who will be offered a vaccine, please see the guidance from the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/priority-groups-for-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-advice-from-the-jcvi-25-september-2020).

Please could we kindly ask you to avoid calling the practice for information about the vaccine as we cannot provide any further details or book anyone in for an appointment to receive a vaccine.

We are experiencing high call volumes currently, calling for the vaccine may stop someone who needs urgent medical help getting through to us. You can find out more by visiting our frequently asked questions page in our website.
