COVID-19 Vaccinations

Darwen Healthlink are pleased to announce that they will be taking part in one of the very first covid vaccination community clinics.  We are working alongside Blackburn with Darwen to deliver this service to our patients so please don't telephone the practice to enquire about getting your vaccination if you think you are eligible.   We will contact you with an invitation to book.  Our telephone lines are extremely  busy at present and we need to ensure that we are there for the patients  who are acutely unwell.
 
We are also aware that you will all have many questions about the new Covid vaccine.  To help you with any queries that you may have please click the link below that will take you to the Blackburn with Darwen CCG Covid Frequently Asked Questions site
 
Many thanks to all our wonderful patients for your understanding at this time.  Not all eligible patients will be invited before Christmas but rest assured, we will continue to roll out invites as the vaccine become available in line with National delivery programmes and eligibility

COVID UPDATE: Lancashire mass vaccination hub

Now that more doses of Covid-19 vaccines are available, the NHS is able to open more vaccination services in Lancashire and South Cumbria, including large Vaccination Centres and, in the near future, pharmacies.

 

People who are eligible, live near these new vaccination services and who haven’t already been vaccinated by their local GP led vaccination services or hospital hub, will receive letters from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service, telling them how they can book their appointment.

 

The NHS is rolling out additional services quickly, but it remains important that the public don’t try to book or go to these services before they receive their booking letter.

 

If you receive a letter from the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service and you book an appointment, please make sure you attend it. The sooner you get your vaccination, when eligible, the earlier you will be protected from Covid-19.

 

Vaccination centres offer an important additional option for people who are eligible, and we expect more sites to be available across Lancashire and South Cumbria in the coming days and weeks.

 

Please don’t delay having your vaccine, but if you can’t travel to a vaccination centre or you would rather wait for an appointment closer to home, you can choose to do that, and your local GP-led service will be in touch soon to offer an alternative.

 

In Lancashire and South Cumbria, we expect to put in place additional Vaccination Centres over the coming weeks in Central Lancashire, Fylde Coast, Morecambe Bay and Pennine Lancashire. As soon as these are ready and available they will appear on the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service.

 

We are continuing to vaccinate patients over the age of 80 years of age and are inviting people in according to the criteria and prioritisation set by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

 

Like the rest of the NHS we are working to offer vaccines to everyone in the top priority groups by the middle of February.

 

Please do not contact us if you haven’t received an invite yet. We are very busy at the moment and doing so could prevent a patient who needs our help from getting through. We will contact you when it is the right time for you to book your appointment.
