The NHS is undertaking the largest vaccination programme in its history. COVID-19 vaccinations are currently being offered to people most at risk from coronavirus.
The first phase of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has begun in Bromley. Initially the vaccination is being prioritised for those aged 80 years and over, care home workers and residents, and frontline health and care staff.
Vaccinations will be delivered at a small number of hospital and GP sites. Practices in Bromley are working together to provide the vaccinations at the GP sites; no single practice is undertaking this by themselves. Logistically, it takes a long time to set up the clinics and vaccine deliveries are being coordinated nationally so we are asking for your patience.
When patients become eligible for vaccination, they will receive an invitation to come forward for their vaccination.
For most people this will be a letter either from the GP practice or the NHS. Some people might receive a text or phone call from their GP practice.
This is going to be a long-term programme and it will likely take until at least Spring 2021 before all high-risk groups have been offered a COVID-19 vaccine.
Please wait to be contacted
The NHS or your GP practice will get in touch with you when it is your turn to be vaccinated. Please do not contact your GP practice, Bromley Healthcare or other services asking for the vaccination as services are extremely busy.
