Mendip Country Practice

Covid Vaccinations - We continue to run the Covid vaccination 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 - https://www.facebook.com/The-Shepton-Hub-101735645349434

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. .
