Welcome to Blackwater Medical Centre
We have been asked by NHS England to deliver the COVID 19 mass vaccination programme and this has been effective from 18 December 2020. We are working together with other local GP Practices to provide the vaccines.
To enable everyone to get a vaccine in a safe and controlled way, a prioritisation list has been established and we are working hard to plan the delivery of COVID 19 vaccinations. We continue to work through our list of groups. You will be contacted when we reach your cohort to offer you an appointment. We are now able to offer vaccinations to our patients over the age of 50; please contact the surgery for an appointment. We also offer vaccinations to certain 'at risk' patients in the age group 18-64. We will contact the patient directly as soon as clinics become available to us. We will also be contacting patients for their second COVID vaccination as and when we are instructed by the Government.
We have received new guidance relating to the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine. The updated Public Health/NHS England information sheet can be found at the following link:-
