Covid-19 Vaccination Programme Update

Patients are asked not to contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 vaccinations.

St Neots Health Centre is part of a PCN (Primary Care Network – group of surgeries) with Lakeside, Great Staughton and Monkfield surgeries and the vaccination programmes are being organised by us together as a PCN. You will get contact by text or phone or letter in due course.

We have started to offer the Covid-19 vaccination to our patients following the Government guidance and priority groups. Eligible patients will be contacted directly to arrange an appointment when it is your turn.

Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine before then.

If you have not yet been approached about having the Covid-19 vaccine, please read the information: why you are being asked to wait.

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
