Update on Covid vaccine

Posted on November 18th, 2020

Update on 18.11.2020

Last week, Pfizer and BioNTech published preliminary data showing the vaccine offered 90% protection against Covid-19 and there were no safety concerns.

This has been followed by impressive data on another vaccine, made by US company Moderna, suggesting nearly 95% protection.

The coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech appears to protect 94% of adults over 65 years old.

As a practice we feel this data is very encouraging and would strongly recommend our patients to be prepared and ready to attend for their COVID vaccine as soon as it becomes available to them particularly in the over 65 year age groups.

Local Delivery of Vaccine will probably start at some point in December or January

PLEASE DO NOT CALL US FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE VACCINE AT THIS STAGE WE WILL CONTACT PATIENTS AS SOON AS WE KNOW ANY NEWS.

It is likely that the vaccine will be delivered from local sites in the South-west Shropshire area.

Portcullis is working with local practices and the CCG to discuss plans for local delivery of the vaccine which are more complex than usual due to the nature of the vaccine.

For more information about priority groups for the vaccine please follow the link on our website below:
