The coronavirus vaccination program continues to evolve as supplies of Pfizer vaccines increase.
From 30th August 2021, all people from 16-59 are welcome to book for a Pfizer vaccination with a small number of children 12-15 and an even smaller number of adults 60 and over eligible as well. We continue to offer Astra Zeneca to all patients 18 and over and it continues to be the only choice for the vast majority of those over 60. Please see our home page for further information.
Please remember that your second dose is vital for best protection, and this must be with the same brand as your first dose.
We are currently booking Pfizer vaccinations into October but will continue to monitor our stock levels and as they increase, we will open up more appointments on our website.
As recent outbreaks have shown, our community’s safety is vulnerable. It is really important for all of us to be vigilant for symptoms and to be tested straight away. We continue to offer telehealth consultations for those with symptoms and can physically examine patients in our protected car park clinic. Please do not attend the clinic if you are unwell. It is vitally important that we keep other patients and our staff safe and ensure that Blackburn Clinic can remain open to serve you and others with all of your health needs.
As an essential business we remain open and able to provide all of our regular services. It is paramount that your regular checks and investigations continue.
On another note, we are pleased to announce that Blackburn Clinic has taken on the lease of the old pharmacy site. We plan to fit out these rooms over summer to allow for a further expansion of our capacity to serve our community.
Finally, a big thank you for all of your wonderful feedback and praise of our staff, our vaccine clinics and our service overall. We are greatly encouraged by your support, as we strive for our mission of delivering excellent healthcare.
Dr Peter Lovass
