Welcome to St Julians Medical Centre
You would have seen publicised in the media that GP practices are now going to be rolling out the Oxford/AstraZenica Vaccine and we have been chosen as a pathfinder practice, which means we will be one of the first practices to be administering the same. We are, however, only receiving very small numbers at present. We are currently looking at the logistics of setting up the clinics and we are following the order of cohorts advised by the government and inviting patients accordingly (Priority Group order). As you will be aware we are extremely busy at the moment in the surgery and we would therefore ask that you do not contact the practice asking for an appointment for your vaccine or for information on when you will be receiving the vaccine. Please note we will be contacting the patients that are eligible in due course so we ask that you please bear with us.
50-65 Cohort for Flu Vaccine
Welsh Government has also announced that we are to vaccine the above cohort against the flu, this is to reduce pressure on the NHS at the present time. This is a new cohort and have not be vaccinated in the past. We would ask that patients contact the surgery as soon as possible so we are able to arrange a clinic for the end of the month. When calling the surgery please listen to the options and choose the flu line between the hours of 10.30 – 12.30 and 2.30 – 5.30pm. Your name will be added to a list and you will be notified of the clinic date.
We know that this is a difficult time for everyone and we appreciate your co-operation.
