You can now book your first vaccination appointments if any of the following apply:
- you are aged 70 or over
- you have previously received a letter saying you are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
You can book online via the NHS website or call 119. If a suitable and convenient slot is not available you can also ring your GP practice.
If you are not eligible for a vaccination yet, the advice is still to wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine.
Buckinghamshire Council have now published information online about the vaccine rollout.
In a recent newsletter, Martin Tett, Leader of the Council said:
I am committed to providing everyone with as much news as possible on this essential programme. I’m therefore really pleased to be in a position today where I can provide you with more information on the vaccination programme in Buckinghamshire.
We expect frequent updates to this information from Bucks Council going forwards.
You still should not contact your GP about the vaccine, unless you have been told to by the NHS. Some GPs may send new information via text or email. Make sure you check your spam/junk folder
The next best place for information about the vaccine is the NHS website. Those pages will always have the latest information.
When the vaccine is available, it will be given according to the government’s priority list.
If you want to leave feedback about the vaccine roll-out you can leave a comment below. Visitors to the site have already left over 50 comments. We won’t publish these comments here but we are collecting feedback to pass on to the services in question. We will make sure the service cannot identify you personally from your comment.
If you want to tell us about your experience of receiving the vaccine, please find your usual surgery using our rate and review service, and leave a comment there. This will make it much easier for us to contact the service providing the vaccinations with any recommendations.
