As of Thursday 7th January 2021 our practice is pleased to be able to start offering COVID-19 vaccinations to our patients.
Given the enormity of this task, the practice and its staff will be working really hard to ensure all eligible patients for the vaccine are contacted and booked in to receive their vaccine.
All patients over the age of 70 should have been contacted and invited for the vaccine by now. If you haven't already heard from us, please call reception on 01212032050 to update your contact details and book yourselves into our Covid Vaccine Clinic - currently running on Fridays.
Birmingham and Solihull frontline healthcare workers are also eligible along with Health & Social care workers. All other patients, please be patient and we will contact you when you are eligible.
All patients will require 2 vaccines. It is essential that each patient has 2 courses of the vaccine to increase their immunity against the virus.
We urge patients to ensure they keep their appointments once booked.
