Appeal to over-70s who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19

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. However, nobody should be left behind, so anyone aged 70 and over or those on the Shielded Patients List who hasn’t had your first dose yet, it may be because the NHS doesn’t have your contact details. Over-70s should come forward now and make an appointment at, or by phoning 119 if they can’t use the internet. GPs and their teams will be prioritising going out to housebound patients this week too – supported by additional investment of £10 per person to reflect the extra costs of vaccinating this way.
