PPG Update on Covid Vaccinations

Geoff Thompson (pictured), Chair of the Uppingham Surgery Patient Participation Group, advises that Rutland Health Primary Care Network has now vaccinated over 50% of the 75 to 79 age group (cohort 3) and will start inviting patients in cohort 4 (all over 70 and those with a government shielding letter) from the first week of February, subject to vaccine delivery. Again the message is clear – do not contact your GP practice, they will contact you.  Note that you may be contacted through a central automated system and asked to go to the Leicester Peepul centre or one of the hospitals instead of the vaccination centre in Oakham.

Please beware of the scams that are circulating.  The NHS will NEVER ask for bank details or ask for any form of payment.
