COVID VACCINATION PROGRAMME UPDATE
St Fillan's Medical Centre are providing Covid-19 Vaccinations alongside the other practices in Ribble Medical Group PCN (primary care network) - our site is based at Penwortham Cricket Club, Greenbank Road, off Leyland Road, Penwortham, PR1 9QE
Please DO NOT telephone the practice about receiving your covid-19 vaccination, you will be invited as you are eligible and vaccine supply allows. We are currently receiving a high volume of calls which are interfering with other patient care.
There is no need to attend the Cricket Club site in advance of your appointment - when the clinic is operational the site will have obvious signage and marshals to direct you. On the day of your appointment please attend at your appointment time only.
The majority of eligible patients in the JCVI cohorts 1-4 have now received their vaccination.
If you are aged 65-69 (cohort 5) you will be invited to book an appointment at one of the regional vaccination centres or a pharmacy service. Local vaccination services (GP led) will focus on inviting those aged 16-64 who are at greater risk from covid-19 (cohort 6).
You can find out more information on the vaccine and eligible cohorts on the NHS website HERE
Patient information leaflets on the Covid-19 vaccine can be found on the Gov.UK website HERE
