** Covid-19 Vaccination Programme **
The Covid-19 Vaccination programme has commenced it is a schedule of 2 vaccinations up to 12 weeks apart. Local practices are working together to provide this important vaccine to all eligible patients across Scarborough and Ryedale, the clinics may be provided in GP Surgeries or other venues.
We are working under strict guidelines from NHS England regarding eligibility and the order of invitations. If you are eligible you will be contacted by the practice and should expect to book your appointment. Please note the location of your appointment as this may not be your usual surgery.
The practice has deployed staff to deliver the Covid-19 Vaccination programme so have less staff available in the practice to assist you. We ask that you only contact the surgery if you feel it is absolutely necessary and cannot be dealt with by a pharmacy, over the counter medicines or can wait. You can also use our online service via this website.
These are challenging times and we thank you for remaining patient and respectful with our staff whilst they try to assist you.
** Latest Updates**
18th January 2021: Our teams continued to vaccinate care home residents and staff over the weekend and all our care homes will be completed by Tuesday this week. We have been allocated a small amount of Astrazeneca vaccine to finish vaccinating our over 80’s who are housebound or could not make it to our Filey clinics and we will be ringing these patients today and tomorrow to arrange this. Beyond this we don’t know any more about any further deliveries so please do not contact the surgery to enquire. We will contact you when we are instructed to move to the next cohort of patients and have been allocated further vaccines. This is a push model of allocating vaccine from the central teams at NHSE. The Practice has no say in what vaccine we get, when we get it, or how much we get. Many thanks.
10th January 2021: This weekend our teams vaccinated our first three care homes with the AstraZeneca vaccine and 700 plus over 80year old patients with their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at Filey surgery. The focus continues in our care homes and mobile over 80’s this week but we have not been notified of our next delivery of vaccines beyond this. Further planning is therefore, currently waiting on the next delivery schedule coming out from central NHS teams. We will keep this page updated as we know more.
