We have received confirmation that the Fordingbridge COVID Vaccination Site will no longer be taking delivery of the Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccination, the last date the Fordingbridge COVID Vaccination Site will be offering the Astra Zeneca vaccination will be on Wednesday 23rd June 2021.

 

We encourage any patient who are due your second dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccination that week to book any remaining slots that we may have.

 

For any patients who have received their first dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccination and will need to book an appointment for their second dose; please call the National Booking System on 119, or Book or manage your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

 

We would like to apologise to the inconvenience this may cause.

 

We will continue to have appointments available at the Fordingbridge COVID Vaccination site for first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

A MESSAGE FOR OUR PATIENTS

In order to help our patients during this time we can offer the following advice when it comes to staying in contact with us. Any queries regarding medical conditions that require clinical contact or intervention must come through the correct channels so they can be dealt with appropriately and in a timely manner: 

 

*If you wish to submit photographs for your GP to view ahead of time and then contact you please use our eConsult system, found below. Only submit photographs via email if your GP has requested that you do so for clinical reasons or, to help with your consultation.  Include your Name and Date of Birth and the name of the GP who requested them.

As you will know, the COVID vaccination programme is underway and some of our patients have already been able to receive the jab at Fordingbridge Hospital. Our staff have been proud to be part of a huge local effort to protect so many people, so quickly.
 
Please be reassured that we will be in touch with you when it is your turn. We know many of you are keen to be vaccinated as soon as possible, but we must ask everyone to be patient - we are not holding reserve stocks of the vaccine and so cannot simply add in extra appointments. Calling or messaging the Practice will not get you an appointment more quickly, but it will take our Staff away from their other work.
 
The Government has said that the vaccination process will be a marathon, not a sprint. It will take time to protect everybody, but we will be in touch with you all as soon as we possibly can.
 
While you wait for you invitation please remember to do the basics to keep yourselves safe:
  • Wash your hands.
  • Cover your face.
  • Make space.
