Covid-19 Vaccinations 

Over the past few weeks , as part of the Healthwest Primary Care Network, Whiteladies Medical Group has successfully vaccinated nearly 2000 patients.

Whiteladies Medical Group has vaccinated all of our patients over the age of 80.  We are expecting another delivery in the next few weeks and we will then start to contact our patients age 70 and over.

Patients in categories 3 and 4 (see below) will shortly be receiving a letter from the National Vaccination Centre inviting you to book an appointment at the vaccination hub at Ashton Gate. Whiteladies Medical Group is a local vaccination site for patients in this area.  If you wish to have an appointment at Ashton Gate you can of course try to book there but we wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that your COVID-19 vaccine will also be available locally in this area. We will contact you to book your appointment. You do not need to call us.

Please wait your turn to be called

While a vaccination programme of this scale will take some time, we can assure you that everyone who needs the vaccine will be offered it. We ask that you don’t call us – we will contact you when it is your turn to be vaccinated. Staff are working tirelessly to ensure the necessary measures are in place for those most at risk to get their vaccine first. To do this, we are following a nationally set prioritisation order, from which we are unable to deviate.

The priority list from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation is as follows:

1. Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers*
2. All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
3. All those 75 years of age and over
4. All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
5.  All those 65 years of age and over
6. All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
7. All those 60 years of age and over
8. All those 55 years of age and over
9. All those 50 years of age and over

*Please note that 'carers' in this context refers to care home staff. If you are a personal or family carer you will be vaccinated within your age-related or clinically vulnerable group if that applies to you.

It is estimated that taken together, these groups represent around 99% of preventable mortality from COVID-19.
