Covid vaccine roll-out

The Lister House Patient Participation Group have been asked to spread the word that the Covid vaccination programme is being managed centrally and Lister House Surgery has no say in who gets the Covid vaccination or when. People will be contacted direct by a central vaccination team giving details of when and where they are required to attend for their vaccination. The surgery also ask that patients do not to contact the surgery to ask for information relating to the vaccination programme as the high number of calls they are receiving is delaying patients with other concerns from getting through.

A clinic will be starting at the end of this week (15 January) in Wellington. Those called so far have received a telephone call rather than a letter, due to sickness at the Royal Mail in Wellington causing problems with the post.

It is understood that two large scale vaccination centres will be starting up in Somerset very shortly so the roll-out of the vaccine should speed up very soon.

Hopefully, if you are eligible, the phone should ring very soon with your appointment.
