Coronavirus Vaccine Update 15/02/2021

The vaccination campaign is well underway in Weymouth and Portland through our local vaccination site which is run by all practices in Weymouth and Portland working together.

We are following the JCVI guidance on who to invite.  Patients in the following groups are currently eligible to receive their vaccination:

  • Residents in care homes for older adults and their carers
  • 80-year-olds and over and frontline health and social care workers
  • 75-year-olds and over
  • 70-year-olds and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (this is those patients who are shielded)
  • All those 65 years of age and over – these patients will receive a central letter inviting them to book their vaccination at one of the mass vaccination centres – which in our area are in Yeovil and at the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre) please click here for information how to get to the BIC from Weymouth by train and by bus.
  • All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which puts them at higher risk – these patients will be invited to book their vaccination at one of the local vaccination centres in Weymouth – either Melcombe Day Hospital (at Weymouth Community Hospital) or at the Pavilion

Vaccinations are happening as quickly as vaccine is received.

Patients will be invited to attend when it is their turn, usually via a link in a text message or a telephone call from our central covid admin team. 

If you are in one of the above priority groups you can also book your vaccine by clicking here. If you do not wish to travel to the options given when booking on-line, you may contact the surgery to arrange an appointment closer to home.

Vaccinations have taken place in all the elderly care homes in Weymouth and Portland.

Most housebound patients in the currently eligible groups have also been vaccinated.  We will continue to offer home visits to those who need one – please contact the surgery should you need this to be arranged.

We have systems in place to ensure that the vaccination is offered to all eligible patients.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please also note this vaccine is FREE!   There have been reports of patients receiving scam phone calls offering the vaccine for 25.

FLU VACCINE AGE 50-64

This winter, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the NHS has the largest flu vaccination programme ever with vaccination now being offered to those aged 50 to 64 years old.

It is important to prevent flu in this group, to protect these people from serious illness and reduce hospitalisations from flu.  Also, research shows that if you get both flu and COVID-19 at the same time you may be more seriously ill. So, vaccination is especially important this winter.

If you are aged 50 to 64 years old (including those who turn 50 by 31 March 2021) you will be invited to attend your GP surgery for the vaccine.

Invitations have already been sent out, but if you have not yet had your Flu Vaccine and are aged 50 to 64 please contact the surgery.  We will only be able to offer this vaccine up to 31 March 2021.
