Covid-19 vaccinations clinics for our patients are being run from Musgrove Park Surgery (Ashford Stour PCN). If you are housebound and have not yet been vaccinated please contact the practice to discuss.

The practice was recently asked to move booking of Covid vaccinations to the national booking service. Any patient wanting to book a 1st or 2nd Covid vaccination should now telephone 119 or go line at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ to book an appointment.

If you have had your first vaccination more than 11 weeks ago and have not been invited for your second dose please contact the national booking service as above.

If you have received and accepted an invitation for a Covid-19 vaccine we would strongly encourage you to prioritise coming to the appointment. If for unavoidable reasons you cannot make it please call 119 to cancel so that they can invite someone else.

We would ask that anyone who does not have their own transport tries to arrange a lift with a friend or relative.

Our staff are working really hard and your support is truly appreciated.

Astra-Zeneca Vaccine

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has said there is no evidence the vaccine had caused problems, and people should still go and get vaccinated when asked to do so. "Blood clots can occur naturally and are not uncommon. More than 11 million doses of the Covid-19 AstraZeneca vaccine have now been administered across the UK," said Phil Bryan of the MHRA.
