Covid Vaccination Update

Please see the message below produced by Dr Rob Childs.

Circulated by the Grove Patient Participation Group.

We held a walk in clinic in the Digby Hall yesterday and we gave another 240 vaccines in a couple of hours. People are still coming forward for their vaccine, whether it is their first, second or booster. Numbers of Covid cases are on the rise locally now as Omicron becomes dominant. Hospital numbers are increasing too. The most striking statistic is that over 70% of Covid patients in Intensive Care Units are unvaccinated against Covid. So please get your vaccination whether it be your first, second or booster.

Locally we have had great uptake of vaccine and yesterday saw us give our 50,000th dose in the Digby Hall since we started on January 4th 2021.

High uptake of vaccine should reduce our risks considerably. Thanks to you if you have had your vaccines and thanks again to all those who have made it possible.

The vaccination clinic in the Digby Hall will now be closed until early in the New Year. For those of you who missed us yesterday or earlier and wish to be vaccinated there are other walk in opportunities locally
