Woodbridge: Covid Vaccine Update

 Coronavirus vaccinations should be starting in  bulk in Woodbridge from this coming Monday, 11 January. They will be delivered 8am-8pm Mon – Sun over the next months, supplies permitting, to  residents in order of priority

It will be the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine

𝗗𝗼𝗻’𝘁 call your surgery to ask when you are due: they 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 contact you.

The priority will be:

 It will, apparently, save a lot of time if you have your NHS number with you when you attend. (Don’t ring your surgery to ask: it should be on any NHS letter or prescription you have)
