We are experiencing a large number of calls of patients querying why they have been invited for their COVID vaccination.
The cohorts are dictated by a national mandate. Our clinical systems have searches in place that determine which patients fall into which cohorts. While you may have heard in the news or on social media that the vaccine is only being offered to particular age groups or cohorts, this may vary on a local basis. If certain cohorts have already been exhausted we still have a duty and moral obligation to utilise the vaccines that we have delivered to us in a timely manner.
Unfortunately due to the increased workload the practices are experiencing due to the Covid Vaccination Programme we are unable to discuss issues pertaining why a patient has been called for their covid vaccination. Please be advised that if you have received an invite we advise you to book your vaccination. We thank you for your understanding.
