Clanfield Practice vaccine updates

The Clanfield Practice has published a series of Covid 19 vaccine rollout updates. Clanfield Online is keen to assist our local surgery in sharing this information as widely as possible with the local community.

We have received feedback from villagers who have attended the special clinics at Petersfield Festival Hall. They speak of friendly medical and admin staff, ably assisted by volunteers, who welcomed them into the clinic and carried out the vaccinations in an efficient and caring manner - the vaccination teams included staff from Clanfield surgery.

The numbers of patients from this area, who have received the vaccine, are simply staggering.  Our thanks to The Clanfield Practice and their hardworking staff. 

The Clanfield Practice reports the following: 

COVID vaccine uptake figures to date:

  • 100% of patients in care homes
  • 96.9% of patients aged over 80
  • 99.1% of patients aged 75-79
  • 97.2% of patients aged 70-74
  • 76.9% of Clinically Extremely Vulnerable patients – some patients have only just been added to this register so are still to be called to our next clinic
  • 80.5% of patients aged 65-69 – further clinics are being held this week

We are continuing to invite patients using the text message system AccuBook and the reception team are calling those patients who do not use mobiles. Letters are also being sent by the NHS with instructions on how to book appointments at the mass vaccination sites.

COVID vaccine – second doses:

We are beginning to receive details of deliveries for second dose vaccinations. Once these deliveries have been confirmed we will start contacting patients to book them for their second vaccination. We only receive around a week’s notice of deliveries so please do not contact the surgery but wait for us to contact you.

COVID vaccine update:

We are currently inviting patients who are aged between 16 and 65 with significant health problems. Further information on the first phase priority groups set by the JCVI can be found through the link: https://www.gov.uk/.../covid-19-vaccination-first-phase...

We are receiving a lot of enquiries from patients in Group 6 asking the surgery when they will get their vaccine appointment. This is a much larger group of patients than the previous groups so will take a few weeks to get through and very much depends on the amount of vaccines that we receive. We will contact everyone in this group when we have available appointments so please do not contact us as our lines need to be kept clear for patients who need medical attention.

Currently our confirmed deliveries are very small and will only cover a small proportion of our Group 6 patients. With the announcement at the weekend that every adult should be offered a vaccination by the end of July, we very much hope that further supplies will be made available.

You may also receive an invitation from the NHS to attend one of the mass vaccination sites. If you do, we would encourage you to respond to their invitation as you may get your vaccine sooner than through the Practice.
