From the Westongrove Practice for those wondering about vaccines
“Over the last few weeks we have been working tirelessly with our neighbouring practices to set up a Covid vaccination centre in Aylesbury using the Pfizer Covid vaccine. The logistics around this have proved to be very complicated and we are still awaiting information about when the vaccine will be delivered before we can start inviting people for the vaccination.
The news of the Oxford Astra-Zeneca Covid vaccine being approved earlier this week has given us all a much needed boost heading into 2021. The fact that this vaccine is much easier to store should allow us to run our local Covid vaccination program more along the lines of our annual flu clinics. We are currently awaiting more information about how the vaccine has to be administered and when we might receive this vaccine. Once we have that information we will be leaving no stone unturned in getting everyone vaccinated as quickly as the supply of vaccine allows.
