Vaccinating as many people as possible across Norfolk and Waveney
11 Jan 2021

Across Norfolk and Waveney and in line with the rest of the country, it continues to be a key priority to ensure that patients are safe and as well as possible and receive their COVID-19 vaccine in line with the priority list published by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

The Medicines Health Regulation Authority (MHRA) has now approved three COVID-19 vaccines; two of which are available and being used to vaccinate individuals.

Bowthorpe Medical Practice in Norwich and the Park Surgery in Great Yarmouth have today joined nine other GP practice sites across Norfolk and Waveney to begin vaccinating patients against Covid-19.

From Friday 8 January, the GP sites will be acting as ‘primary care hubs’; vaccinating patients registered with their own practice as well as patients from other neighbouring practices.

Those who are most at risk from Covid-19 are being prioritised first; members of the public who are over 80 years-old, care home workers and a small number of ‘at risk’ frontline NHS staff.
