Please wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then. The vaccine will be delivered from a PCN hub (NHS England have said there can only be 1 vaccination site per PCN) . PCN'S (Primary Care Networks) cover a group of practices, there are 5 practices in our PCN. The vaccine will be delivered from the PCN hub, (the closest location for our PCN is Debenham Community Centre) and will not be delivered from individual practice sites. The first patients to be contacted (starting from the 18th January) will be those in the highest priority groups starting with those patients aged over 80 (please see below). This contact will not come from the practice but will be from a central hub and any queries you have following being contacted should be directed back to the central hub. You may receive a text, letter or phone call, please be patient you will get an invite. You may also receive multiple contacts, for example you may receive contact from our PCN hub (you may be offered additional sites to Debenham), the Government mass vaccination site (the Norwich mass vaccination site opens on the 18th January & Gainsborough Leisure Centre in Ipswich at the end of January). The Government invite may offer you a variety of locations we have had reports of them offering venues as far as field as London, please don't worry you do not need to take up the offer of the government invites you can wait for the PCN invitation if you would prefer to attend the Debenham venue. click here for the latest Government information for the Covid Vaccine. The vaccine will be given to patients in order of their priority as deemed by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. It is expected that the Government will set up additional 'mass vaccination' sites and we await details of these sites.
