Victoria Cross Surgery and Eldene Health Centre would like to take this opportunity keep our patients informed with regards to the current status of the vaccination programme being operated out of STEAM.
We are happy to share that working collaboratively as part of the Brunel Health Group and its 4 PCNS alongside Wyvern Health Partnership PCN we have now vaccinated well over 45,000 patients at the Steam Museum in Swindon.
As of the 11th March 2021 we started vaccinating our patients who are over 80 with their second dose of the Covid 19 vaccination.
We will continue to invite our patients for the Covid19 vaccinations as per the government guidelines relating to age cohort and vulnerability.
If you are aged 60 and over and have NOT been contacted by us to invite you for your Covid vaccine please contact the surgery by telephone or email.
We have since Monday 15th March, began inviting patients in cohort group 9 in line with the national programme. We will invite all of our eligible patients, including those who have already been invited to the mass vaccination centres.
Please be aware that the booking of any appointments can only take place once our delivery schedule for the following week has been confirmed, on occasion this can delay invites from the NHS letters received by a few days however wait times for patients once invited is uually not more than 10 days and frequently less, with a view to patients who we have invited receiving their vaccinations within a week from the day we contact them.
Your continued patience and understanding at this time is greatly appreciated, please do not contact your surgery about the Covid19 vaccine unless you are over 60. Victoria Cross Surgery and Eldene Health Centre will be proactively contacting all our eligible patients as they become due either by text or phone.
