Over 70s urged to contact NHS to get vaccine

Over 70s urged to contact NHS to get vaccine

by Tom Martin (February 2021)

All over 70s who have not received a vaccination appointment are urged to get in touch with the NHS.

The last invites to those aged 70 and over or on the Shielded Patients List who are yet to be vaccinated have now either been delivered or are due to arrive this week (w/c 8th Feb), meaning vaccines have been offered to everyone eligible whose contact details the NHS has.

So if you are aged 70 and over and haven’t had your first dose yet, please come forward now and make an appointment: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/, or by phoning 119 if you can’t use the internet.

GPs and their teams will also be prioritising going out to housebound patients this week too.

The large numbers of very sick patients hospitals are seeing and the emergence of a new variant of the virus also shows that we cannot let our guard down now, and even those who have received a vaccine still need to follow all the same guidance as everyone else to help protect others.
