People aged 60-64 to start receiving COVID-19 vaccination invitations


In the next week Cheshire residents aged 60 to 64 will receive a letter inviting them to come forward for a COVID-19 vaccination.

The quickest and easiest way to arrange an appointment is via the national booking service, which offers appointments at local NHS Vaccination Centres from 9am to 11pm, seven days a week.

Venues include NHS Vaccination Centres at Alderley Park Conference Centre and five pharmacies across Cheshire.

People aged 65 or over who have already been invited for a COVID-19 vaccination are also advised to use the national booking service to arrange their appointment as GP-led services are currently focusing on vaccinating people aged 16-64 who are clinically vulnerable.

The national booking service is available online or by calling 119.

Now here's a thing, people over 65 are advised to use the booking service. So I rang them two hours ago and they have no local vaccinations available, quote 'It could be up to another two weeks before I get vaccinated'. So why then are GP led services now focusing on 16-64 when the over 65's obviously have NOT ALL been vaccinated? Oh and by the way the NHS vaccination centre at Alderley Park is one of the places booked up as I have been trying for the last two days to book a vaccine there online.
