Local vaccine update
The best place to find the latest information about the COVID-19 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 either 36 or over, clinically vulnerable, clinically extremely vulnerable, learning disabled, a frontline health or social care worker or is the main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus 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.
Transport options for vaccinations
There are a number of community transport schemes and taxi firms available to help with transport to vaccination appointments.
Please complete the Cambridgeshire County Council's online form (link below). The form above will take you through to the options available in your local area or direct you to support if you need help to pay for transport to your appointment.
If you need help completing the form, please call the Cambridgeshire County Council on 0345 045 5219 Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm and they can help you to identify the transport options in your area.
Advice from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group
- 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.
- Your 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.
