Covid Vaccinations - We continue to run the
programme at Shape Mendip, Mendip District Council Offices. MDC staff
have worked tirelessly and collaboratively with Mendip PCN to provide
the venue, staff and many other facilities. We are extremely grateful
for all that they are doing and very much hope that after the programme
has finished we are able to build on this collaboration and
relationship with other services that both entities provide.
We strongly urge anyone in cohorts 1 to 9 ( this is people aged 50 and
above, anyone in the at risk group, carers, Health Care Workers or
anyone in the household of an immunocompromised person) who has not
taken up the offer of a vaccine to do so - either by booking on line -
via the SMS message sent from their surgery, phoning their surgery or
getting in touch with the CEV Hub via Facebook -
Next cohort - aged 40 to 49. Please wait to be
contacted by your
surgery, either by SMS message, via phone or telephone. We would urge
patients NOT to phone their surgery unless they have been contacted.
This has put immense pressure on the reception teams particularly over
the last few days, and blocks the telephone system for patients needing
appointments with a doctor or nurse.
We would also ask patients to check that
their surgery has their
correct contact details particularly mobile and landline numbers.
