Covid 19 Vaccination Programme 

Our local vaccination hub in Royston started vaccinating our patients last week, focussing initially on patients over the age of 75.  This week we have invited all those over the age of 70 to book an appointment.  

 If you are over 75 years old, a patient at our practice, and haven't yet heard from us, please now contact us to arrange your appointment. If you have received a text message invitation, you can book through this.  If you have received an invitation letter from the NHS, you also have to option to contact the phone number and arrange vaccination at one of the mass vaccination centres such as the Grafton Centre or Stevenage.

Please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
