Coronavirus Covid19 logo

The Laurel Bank Surgery has been informed that the Primary Care Network has received confirmation that they will be receiving 975 doses of the Pfizer vaccine for the Coronavirus Covid19 on Wednesday 6th January.

It is planned to administer this vaccine by appointment through Rural Alliance Covid vaccine clinics, on Thursday 7th, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th January.
These clinics will be held at Cheshire View which is the Freemasons Hall in Waverton.

The Malpas Surgery has 189 appointments to book across the 3 days.

The Surgery will be working with our colleagues from Bunbury, Kelsall, Tarporley and the Village Surgeries Group.

They will be arranging for our most elderly and frail patients to attend for a 10 minute appointment on one of these days, with a 2nd appointment exactly 12 weeks later.

Rules governing appointments:
Patients will be expected to wait in the building for 15 minutes after their vaccine for observation.

Patients should not attempt to enter Cheshire View until their designated appointment time.

Patients can attend with a member of their family or carer if required, e.g. if they have poor mobility etc. Wheelchairs or walking aids can be used throughout the building, the access is via a ramp.

Everyone attending must socially distance themselves from the person in front of them.

Other Residents:
Our other residents will need to bear with us, this vaccination will only be cover approximately 35% of our over 80s.
National supplies of the vaccine are limited and at this time there is no indication when the next delivery will be.
However, it is expected that deliveries will improve over the coming weeks.

The surgery has also been informed that it will also receive 400 doses of the Astra Zeneca vaccine which will be used initially to vaccinate the PCN 5 Care Home residents and staff and our housebound patients.

However, this will not start until all the paperwork for the vaccine is received from NHSE (Nation Health Service Executicve).
