COVID-19 Vaccination Update
Covid-19 vaccination: Don’t call us, we will call you
We are vaccinating in line with the guidance set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), who decide the order in which people should be vaccinated.
Vaccination update: April 2021: All patients over the age of 50 have now been offered a vaccination. We are delighted to share with you the number of Meon Medical Centre patients that have now received a Covid-19 vaccination, as follows:
|Group 1 - 98%||Group 2 - 98%||Group 3 - 96%|
|Group 4 - 94%||Group 5 - 96%||Group 6 - 89%|
|Group 7 - 96%||Group 8 - 90%||Group 9 - 90%|
Anyone who is pregnant is now eligible and should have the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
If AstraZeneca was given for the first dose and a second is due, the advice is to complete with the second vaccine of AstraZeneca.
New group 6a- Anyone living with someone who is immunocompromised is now eligible.
If aged under 30 years need to have Pfizer or Moderna.
Anyone who has had a dose of AstraZeneca should continue with that same vaccine, even if they are under 30 and had AstraZeneca the first time.
AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine
The dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is 0.5ml.
Based on good evidence of higher clinical protection, JCVI currently recommend that, ideally, an eight week minimum interval should be observed for this vaccine. An interval of 28 days may be observed when rapid protection is required (for example for those about to receive immunosuppressive treatment).
If you are an eligible frontline worker, social care worker or a carer, please refer to the link below for more information including how to book a vaccination if you are eligible.
