Covid Vaccination Update 12.01.2021
The Covid Vaccination Hub at Rosebank Surgery is now up and running and working well with other Practices from the local area. As a group of Practices working together we have vaccinated over 3000 patients.
As of today Rosebank Health has vaccinated all of our elderly care home residents and care home staff, over 600 80+year olds and over 400 75+ year olds. We still have 300 over-80 year olds to contact and they are our current priority to get vaccinated. We have staff working throughout the day phoning and inviting these patients to our next clinic, nobody has been forgotten!
Unfortunately we do not have any control over the deliveries of the Covid Vaccine, however we do get told when and how many will arrive but at very short notice. Gloucestershire is way ahead of many other areas.
PLEASE DO NOT PHONE THE SURGERY REQUESTING A VACCINE! We would ask you to wait patiently until you are contacted, we have to follow the Government guidelines and offer to patients as per the cohorts. Telephone traffic into the surgery is very high at the moment, please do not ring the surgery unnecessarily as you are stopping patients who may have an emergency.
Please be mindful that not only are we working incredibly hard to provide our normal services, we are part of the largest vaccination programme the NHS has ever seen and we also have staff who are suffering with Covid and isolating! We are doing our best!!!
