COVID-19 Vaccinations – (Information last updated 26 February 2021)

We are now calling patients from Cohort 5 (65+) or Cohort 6 (those deemed clinically vulnerable), definition of the prioritisation is available from the Government here. Please wait for us to call you.

  • Calling reception merely prevents our unwell patients getting prompt attention. We have a separate team booking Covid vaccinations
  • The NHS is now writing to patients in Cohort 7 (aged 60 – 64) offering a vaccination at a mass vaccination centre. You can do this or alternatively, please wait for us to contact you to book an appointment at your local site. We plan to start on Cohort 7 within the next two week.
  • Second Appointment? Please be patient; we will contact you from April starting again with the 80+. If you had your first dose at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, they will contact you very soon.

General Information

Patients and carers within the ‘North Norfolk Four Primary Care Network’ (NN4 PCN) (which are the practices at Acle, Blofield, Brundall, Ludham & Stalham Green, Hoveton & Wroxham and Staithe Stalham) we are busy delivering vaccines in line with the JCVI priority list.

Where

Due to the storage requirements of the Pfizer vaccine, initially, we need to provide the vaccine at a central location. This location will be the Hoveton Village Hall, Stalham Road, Hoveton, NR12 8DU.

We are also administering Astra Zeneca (Oxford) vaccines from the Hall too but cannot predict which until just a few days before.

When

We are receiving vaccines on a weekly basis. We will contact you.

How

Staff from your practice will contact you to book your appointment, either by a telephone call from our medical receptionists or by a text to your mobile phone if you have one. You must have an appointment to attend the vaccination clinic. Please do not turn up without an appointment – we will not be able to vaccinate you.

Who

We will start with those patients aged 80+. We are also planning how we can provide vaccinations for patients and staff in care homes and for the house bound as quickly as possible.

Please remember that Covid has not gone away and infection rates are still very high. It’s important that we all stick to the national advice and remember hands, face, space.
