PATIENT NOTICE

 

Covid Vaccine - 12th January 2021 update

The Health Centre has now received it’s first delivery of COVID Vaccines.

However like every practice in Perth and Kinross we only received a small amount and no regular timetable of when to expect further deliveries.

We have started organising our clinics.  We are working from the oldest patient down; though couples who are both in this cohort will be invited together. The current cohort is for patients who are over 80 years of age by 31st March 2021.  Housebound patients will be vaccinated by the HSCP Immunisation team.

So please be patient, we will hopefully be in touch with everyone in this cohort to book an appointment for a vaccine in the next 3 weeks, but are at the mercy of NHS Tayside’s delivery schedule. Please do not phone us to book an appointment; we will be in touch with you.
