People who are over 80 and care home workers will be the first to be invited to make an appointment for vaccination. At the moment there is no vaccine suitable for people who cannot travel to the single site due to strict storage and transport requirements for the vaccine.

There are over 2500 people over 80 in Rutland, and the vaccine is delivered in batches of 975, so please don’t worry if you are not contacted straight away. People will be contacted in age order and all vaccinations will be given by prior appointment only.

Please do not contact your GP practice – they will contact you. Your practice will be unable to help you with any COVID vaccination enquiries.

The Rutland Primary Care Network is publishing regular updates and frequently asked questions about the Rutland Covid Vaccination Programme. The PCN is also posting regularly on Twitter @rutlandhealth.
