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)

Please note,  the Woodbridge Emergency Response Group are volunteers, they do not charge for their help,  and they generally can be recognised by these vests

Unfortunately, while a crisis can bring out the best in most people, it does bring a few snakes out of the long grass.
