Covid Vaccinations for Patients Aged 80 and Over

Good news! Our practice has access to more COVID19 vaccine stock arriving next week of Pfizer Covid 19 vaccinations which is first being offered to patients who meet the following criteria.

  • You must be a patient of our practice
  • Aged 80 or over
  • Are not currently suffering from symptoms of covid 19
  • Have not already been advised to self-isolate on the clinic
    dates due to possible exposure to covid 19
  • Are able to travel to Bodmin Treatment Centre, Boundary
    Road, Bodmin PL31 2QT (on the Bodmin Hospital site) to
    receive your vaccination (NB: limited toilet facility)
  • Are able to walk a short distance from a car park into the
    building or get dropped by someone who can wait to
    collect you after your vaccination which will usually take
    between 20-30 mins (housebound patients will be
    contacted separately in due course)

If you meet all of the above, then we will be able to book you an appointment one of two ways:

  • 1. Where we have a mobile phone number recorded on your
    record we will send you a text with a link to book your
    appointment – please use this method if possible to relieve
    pressure on our phone lines).
  • 2. All other patients aged 80 or above, we will be ringing you –
    please do not ring us. Our main phone lines need to be
    accessible for patient care and we have specific staff ringing on
    other lines to book your covid vaccination appointment. We
    cannot book ALL of you straight away and we may find that we
    need to book some of you at a slightly later date when yet
    another supply is received – but please don’t worry. Supplies are
    coming quicker and quicker and even if we don’t get to speaking
    to you before these appointments fill up, we anticipate opening
    up more clinics very soon after, but obviously can only do so
    when we are certain we will have enough vaccine in stock.

Very Important

Please do not ring Bodmin Hospital to make enquiries about this vaccination programme. Your GP surgery will be able to answer your query.
