    Covid Vaccinations Update

    We have been allocated more Astra Zeneca Vaccines over the last few weeks and have been inviting certain Cohorts of our patients to attend the Brook Health Centre for their vaccinations. We are now inviting Cohort 9 (50s +). The large mass vaccination centres have also been inviting our patients with earlier allocation of supplies. Very often when we have sent invitations, we have found patients to have already booked. Apologies for duplication of telephone calls, but its good that Towcester patients are all rising to the challenge and getting their vaccinations. Take up has been very good in our area. We have opted to continue with the cohorts 10-12 when supplies are available.

    Covid Vaccination Clinics

    We now have limited supplies of the Astra Zeneca vaccine coming to us as and when distribution and supplies allow it. We are booking in Cohort 6 - the Clinically vulnerable (16-64 yr olds) as identified by NHS England and carers. As supplies are limited we have to work through this large group by age as we cannot do everybody at the same time. Please bear with us - everyone will be called as soon as we are able. All those who received their vaccinations at Brackley Medical Centre, early in the campaign at the end of December/January will be getting near to their 2nd vaccination. Please be patient, supplies will follow shortly by the end of March and you will either be sent a text to book the appointment or will be rung by the Brook Health Centre.

    Covid Vaccinations Update

    We are now receiving regular deliveries of the Astra Zeneca Covid vaccine. There are clinics at the Brook Health Centre on certain days. The mass vaccination centres have also been sending appts to patients in the selected age and at risk cohort. Patients have the choice to book where it best suits them. We are pleased to say the target of reaching everyone in the 1-4 cohorts has virtually been reached and Northants has reached a very high percentage of their patients. We just have a few more to complete this week. If anyone who is 70 yrs and above has not been contacted and offered a Covid vaccination, please contact the surgery.

    Covid Vaccinations Update

    We are please to say most our patients aged 78 and above have been offered the Covid vaccination and had it given at Brackley Medical Centre. There are a few more to give in that age bracket who for various reasons could not receive it first time round. We are in the process of contacting them with new dates. We also have vaccinated the patients who were well enough to have it, in the Care Homes that we look after. Also the care home staff. We are hoping to receive small quantities of the Astra Zeneca vaccine in the near future, which we are hopeful will enable us to vaccinate our patients at the Brook Health Centre. We are at the mercy of the supply chain, so cannot say when that will be. Our next group of patients to be called for their vaccination when all of the existing cohort are done, will be 75+. Please be assured, when we receive deliveries or Brackley MC receive the vaccine, we will be contacting patients to offer appointments.

    Now that we are in another lockdown for at least a month, we have locked our doors again for the safety of patients and staff. PLEASE BE ASSURED WE ARE NOT CLOSED. There is a bell to ring and a receptionist will open the door, take your temperature and check all is well with you before you enter the building. We would ask that the minimum number of people come into the surgery, so please come alone for your appointment if possible. Carers and parents excepted of course. The present system will continue and all patients will be screened by a telephone call and if needed a video call arranged or face to face appointment. Please continue to bring your mask with you. Many thanks.
