The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination programme will start from the week commencing 14 December.

Due to the need to store this at very low temperatures all the South Hams practices’ patients are being vaccinated at a central site which will be within 10 minutes’ drive of South Brent.

Initially the vaccine will be offered to those over 80 years old – the Health Centre will be contacting patients directly but the booking system is centralised and choice of slots is very limited.

Please accept the slot offered as the practice only has a finite allocation per week and we need to use them all.

You can drive yourself or arrange for a lift with family or friends.

A second dose is then due 3 weeks later – and will be on the same day of the week at the same time.

Patients will need to remain at the site for 15 minutes after vaccination but can drive themselves.

Please do not contact the Health Centre, hospital or GPs, but do continue to adhere to the measures and restrictions that help limit transmission of the virus.
