Local vaccine update
The best place to find the latest information about the vaccination programme is via the local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGS), which are responsible for the programme. You can see the links to the local CCGs below.
- Anyone who is over 70 and who has not yet been invited for the vaccine is now being asked to book their vaccination appointment online or by calling 119.
- You can learn about the vaccine rollout on the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group's website.
- The vaccination is now available to all frontline health and social care workers, both within the NHS and in private provider organisations. Frontline health and social care workers can find specific FAQs on the CCG's site.
As soon as information is made available related to the additional 1.7 million people who have been added to the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable list, we will link to this here. We will also link to information about who is eligible as an unpaid carer for the vaccination, when the guidelines are published.
A message from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group - which runs the vaccine programme locally
20 January 2021
"The Government asked the NHS to deliver a Covid-19 vaccination programme for England from December, so that those who need it most were able to access vaccinations as soon as they became available.
"Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG swiftly undertook detailed planning with its partners, building on the expertise and strong track record the NHS already has in delivering immunisations like the annual flu vaccination programme, to ensure that a Covid-19 vaccination programme does not impact on other vital services and could be swiftly put into place across its area.
"Vaccinations are now well underway in our area. Local people are being contacted when it's their turn to be vaccinated. Please don’t contact your GP in advance of being invited to book an appointment, as they won’t be able to book you in before then. If you are registered with a local GP, there is no need to do anything else to ensure you get invited to book a vaccination appointment.
"If you are not registered with a GP, you can find out how to register via the NHS website.
"In the meantime, it’s important to remember that a Covid-19 vaccination will not protect you from flu. If you have been invited for a free flu vaccination please make sure you keep your appointment.
"The CCG will be inviting more patients to have their vaccinations as soon as these additional vaccination sites and vaccination appointments become available and will follow up with any patients who have been invited and not responded.
"You can find out more about the programme, including the current vaccination locations, the priority groups for vaccination and more, on the CCG website. This page is updated regularly.
"If you have any further queries not dealt with on the CCG’s web pages and FAQs, please feel free to contact the CCG’s Patient Experience Team at: firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0800 279 2535."
