These patients include:

  • 95% of people aged over 75
  • 89% of people aged between 70-74
  • 70% of those aged 65-69
  • 230 care home residents 
  • Approximately 800 health and social care staff
  • 180 housebound patients

Appointments began last week for priority group 6 patients (vulnerable people aged 16 to 64 and carers) and are continuing this week along with priority group 7 (people aged over 60) and some appointments for people aged over 56 (subject to vaccine supply).

In parallel, the national NHS vaccination programme began offering people over 56 the opportunity to book their first jab at the Leicester mass vaccination hub at the Peepul Centre this week. 

If you received your first vaccination at the Rutland vaccination centre between 21st-23rd December 2020 you should have received your invitation for your second vaccination appointment this week. You can find a full list of second vaccination dates on the Rutland Health PCN website (you will be contacted when vaccination availability is confirmed).

Everyone vaccinated after March 5th at the Rutland centre will receive the second appointment when they attend for their first.
