Covid 2nd Vaccinations Update!

We are getting lots of calls from patients asking to book their second vaccination. All patients who had their first vaccination at our PCN hubs will be called. We ask patients not to be concerned about the vaccine for their second doses, we have been assured that the vaccine for the second doses is protected.  Patients should expect to have their second dose approximately 11 weeks after the first. Can we politely ask that patients don’t keep calling us unless we have left you a message? It clogs the phone lines which are incredibly busy at the moment.
 
We will be collaborating again with Hadleigh and East Bergholt Practices. Patients will be called to attend the same surgery that they went to the first time.

Many Thanks for your understanding. Perhaps you could share this message with family, friends or neighbours who may be anxious.

  Covid-19 rapid testing is now available for those who need to leave their home. Keep Suffolk safe. Click on this link     https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/getting-a-test/covid-19-asymptomatic-testing/
