Those over 70 or CEV now asked to call their GP if they have not had their first Covid-19 vaccine

The local NHS remain on track to offer Covid-19 vaccines to our most vulnerable patients by the middle of February. As we continue to make significant progress vaccinating those who are most at risk, we want to ensure sure no-one in our top priority groups is left waiting for an appointment as we move to start vaccinating the next priority groups.  

Therefore, the local NHS is asking any patients who are clinically extremely vulnerable and have been shielding or who are aged 70 and over and live in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who have not had their first COVID-19 vaccination to now get in touch with their GP practice to book their vaccination appointment. 

Patients may have also received a letter from the National Booking Service inviting them to attend one of the Mass Vaccination Centres. If so, patients can choose to book an appointment at one of these centres or contact their GP to book in at their local GP-led sites. 

The message for everyone else who falls outside of the cohorts 1-4 priority groups remains the same – stay safe, sit tight and we will contact you when it’s your turn.
