VACCINATIONS for CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
As soon as Mid Devon Medical Practice receives the coronavirus vaccine we will invite patients to start attending vaccination appointments. The order in which people will be invited is based on the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) prioritisation
To find out more please visit:
Our staff are working incredibly hard to deliver what is the largest vaccination programme in our history, at the same time as continuing to be there for everyone who needs care. You have an important part to play to help us to do this:
• Please don’t contact the surgery to seek a vaccine, we will contact you
• When we do contact you, please attend your booked appointment at exactly the time we give you
• Please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives (Hands - Face - Space)
Please wear a face covering when entering our Surgery Buildings ….
Following Government advice we must ask all patients, their relatives and carers who enter the surgery building for any reason to wear a face covering or mask.
All staff (unless unable to for a specific reason) will also be wearing masks following this updated guidance.
Thanks you for co-operating with this advice.
